One of antiquity's greatest poets, Euripides has been prized in every age for the pathos, terror and intellectual probing of his dramatic creations. This volume completes the new six-volume Loeb Classical Library edition of his plays. In "Bacchae", a masterpiece of tragic drama, Euripides tells the story of king Pentheus' resistance to the worship of Dionysus and his horrific punishment. "Iphigenia at Aulis" recounts the sacrifice of Agamemnon's daughter to Artemis, the price exacted by the goddess for favourable sailing winds. "Rhesus" (probably not by Euripides) dramatizes a pivotal incident in the Trojan War. David Kovacs presents a faithful and skilfully worded translation of the three plays, facing a freshly edited Greek text.

Kovacs's translation is a tour de force... In general, the notes accompanying the translation, explaining such things as geographical and mythological names, are judiciously chosen, concise, and crystal clear... I have nothing but praise for [Kovacs's] scholarship, and the lucidity of his writing, both as translator and commentator. [This volume] should be [the] standard translation for many years to come.--John Davidson "Scholia Reviews "
