Gilbert Murray's Euripides
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Gilbert Murray's early 20th century verse translations of Greek tragedy were hugely important in communicating Greek culture to the public and inspiring performances by commercial theatres. This volume brings together Murray's translations of Euripides' Medea, Hippolytus, Electra, Trojan Women and Bacchae, along with the introductions and notes in which he set out his distinctive view of each work. James Morwood introduces the plays by considering technical aspects of Murray's translations and their performance histories. No jacket
