    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2008; US$ 7.95

    This is the Medea we have been waiting for. It offers clarity without banality, eloquence without pretension, meter without doggerel, accuracy without clumsiness.

    In power, passion, and the brilliant display of moral conflict, the drama of ancient Greece remains unsurpassed.

His introduction explores the religious... more...

    Indiana University Press 1996; US$ 17.99

    Extremely well written, and exceedingly well informed, this is a work that opens a variety of important questions in sophisticated and theoretically nuanced ways.
