About This Book

An industrial port of a war-torn city. Women survivors wait to be shipped abroad. Officials come and go. A grandmother, once Queen, watches as her remaining family are taken from her one by one. The city burns around them. Euripides' great anti-war tragedy is published in Don Taylor's translation to coincide with the National Theatre's production directed by Katie Mitchell in the Lyttelton auditorium. This edition of the play features an introduction by the translator setting the play in its historical and dramaturgical context.

punished, 
she 
and 
Menelaus 
will 
live 
in 
Sparta 
as 
before. 
So
the 
war’s 
great 
end 
has 
apparently 
been 
accomplished. 
But
was 
it 
worth 
it? 
Is 
that 
why 
all 
those 
men, 
a 
whole
civilisation, 
died? 
So 
that 
Helen 
can 
twist 
Menelaus 
round
her 
little 
Ô¨Ānger,¬†
just 
as 
she 
has 
done 
before 
our 
eyes?
Euripides 
not 
only 
confronts 
us 
with 
the 
suffering, 
but 
also
with 
a 
question. 
If 
this 
is 
what 
we 
do 
to 
each 
other, 
and 
for
this 
reason, 
can 
it 
possibly 
be 
worth 
it?
It 
is 
a 
question 
that 
must 
have 
echoed 
in 
a 
good 
many
Athenian 
minds 
as 
they 
went 
down 
between 
the 
Long 
Walls
to 
Piraeus 
and 
saw 
the 
great 
Sicilian 
task 
force 
assembling 
in
the 
bay.
