"A comprehensive introduction by Peter Burian explores major themes and structures."--Publishers Weekly"A very readable and passionate translation. Euripides' pathos comes out well."--Clifford Broenimur, University of Massachusetts at Amherst"Thanks for an excellent version of this important text."--Professor David Hopes, UNCA"Euripedes' Ion has much to recommend it to today's reader or dramatic producer....Ion can be used in myth-courses (an excellent text on Apollo), drama-in-translation courses, and also women-in-antiquity courses, since Kreousa exemplifies in miniature the plight of ancient women....The new addition to the Greek Tragedies in New Translatioins...presents a marvellously balanced introduction to the play."--Bryn Mawr Classical ReviewAbout the Author:
Euripides is the youngest and most controversial of the three surviving great tragedians from fifth century Athens. His works include Medea, the Trojan Women, the Bacchae, Iphigenia at Aulis and Hippolytus. His polemic, charged plays with their universal themes and significance remain highly relevant to today's society.
