Medea and Other Plays : Medea; Hecabe; Electra by Euripides

Genre: poet plays - classic Greek
Rating: Excellent *****

I'd forgotten how much I loved reading Greek tragedies until I re picked up this book to read.
Loved Medea the best - the story of Jason's spurred wife and mooter of his two she enacts revenge on him and all those who have wronged her.
As a feminist I'm on her side!!!

'These plays show Euripides transforming the awesome figures of Greek mythology into recognizable, fallible human beings.'
