The first playwright of democracy, Euripides wrote with enduring insight and biting satire about social and political problems of Athenian life.  In contrast to his contemporaries, he brought an exciting--and, to the Greeks, a stunning--realism to the "pure and noble form" of tragedy.  For the first time in history, heroes and heroines on the stage were not idealized:  as Sophocles himself said, Euripides shows people not as they ought to be, but as they actually are.

Baker & Taylor
Ten extraordinary dramatic works by the ancient Greek playwright offer a satirical and insightful view of classical Athenian society in such works as Medea, The Trojan Women, Electra, and Iphegenia at Aulis, among others. Reissue.
