More Description

Euripides' searching, poetic voice probes the waste and suffering of war in these plays set in the wake of the Trojan defeat to reflect the playwright's changing attitude to the real war between Athens and Sparta in his own day, 4th century BC. "Hecuba" is a play of ghosts and shadowy death; "The Women of Troy" is a searing indictment of the aftermath of defeat; "Iphigenia at Aulis" shows a human tragedy at the heart of the mechanics of war; and "Cyclops" is a satyr play which offers a comic antidote to the tragedies.
