Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is the best text for this [graduate and advanced undergraduate] level I have ever encountered in many years of teaching Greek Tragedy."—Joseph F. Desmond, Tufts University

"An ideal introduction to reading Greek tragic texts. Remarkable range of assistance and information shrewdly deployed so students may take as much as they need."—Andrew Ford, Princeton University

Chicago Tribune
Accessible, but not prosaic, vivid but not overstated, poetic but not inflated...Rudall has done an excellent job.
Chicago Sun-Times
Rudall features a sharp, vivid precision edge...immediate and accessible.

This play is well written and gives a different perspective on how women react to situations of love and betrayal. Its very intense,and intriguing, you will not want to put it down :)
