"I am very impressed with what Mitchell-Boyask has managed to put together in this volume.... I give it my wholehearted recommendation."
John Peradotto, author of Man in the Middle Voice: Name and Narration in the Odyssey, and coeditor of Women in the Ancient World

Known for their fully drawn characters, artistic complexity, and a multifaceted engagement with social issues, the plays of Euripides inspire divergent critical views. While some scholars find that the dramatist writes from a traditional Greek perspective, others see a radically innovative artist who criticizes Athenian politics, the treatment of women, and the Olympian gods. Readers will find both views in this collection of essays designed to help teachers present Euripides and his plays to today's students.
