Heraclidae

Synopsis

This edition and commentary provides an invaluable introduction to one of Euripides' lesser-known plays. The play is centered round the fortunes of the children of Heracles and their persecution at the hands of the king of Athens, Eurystheus. Wilkins's commentary interprets the poetic and dramatic features of the play, and also locates it in its cultural setting, discussing its importance to the understanding of Greek cults and religious rituals. The Greek text matches that of the Oxford Classical Text.
