Four by Euripides

Medea, Bakkhai, Hippolytus, and Cyclops

Translated by Robert Bagg
Robert Bagg's translations are prized for making ancient Greek dramas immediate and gripping. His earlier translations of the plays of Sophocles and Euripides have been performed over seventy times, across a wide array of stages. This edition includes accessible new translations of four plays by Euripides—the tragedies Medea, Bakkhai, and Hippolytos, and the satyr play Cyclops—all rendered in iambic pentameter, a meter wellsuited for the stage. They sustain the strengths that Bagg is known for: taut and vivid language and faithfulness to the Greek. Students new to the world of classical drama will find rich and informative introductions to each work, explanatory notes, and stage directions that evoke the plays' original fifthcentury BCE Athenian settings.

About the Author

ROBERT BAGG is professor emeritus of English at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and the author of five books of poetry, including Madonna of the Cello, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. His work has been supported by Guggenheim, Rockefeller, NEH, and NEA fellowships.

Reviews

"The translations are first rate and will add significantly to the quality of the burgeoning number of translations of Greek tragedy into English."—Rush Rehm, author of Understanding Greek Tragic Theatre and artistic director of the Stanford Repertory Theater
