In Herakles, Euripides reveals with great subtlety and complexity the often brutal underpinnings of our social arrangements. The play enacts a thoroughly contemporary dilemma about the relationship between personal and state violence to civic order. Of all of Euripides' plays, this is his mostskeptically subversive examination of myth, morality, and power. Depicting Herakles slowly going mad by Hera, the wife of Zeus, this play continues to haunt and inspire readers. Hera hates Herakles because he is one of Zeus' children born of adultery, and in his madness, Herakles is driven to murder his own wife and children and is eventually exiled, by hisown accord, to Athens. This new volume includes a fresh translation, an updated introduction, detailed notes on the text, and a thorough glossary.… (més)

More Greek tragedy, this one involving the feud between Hera and Hercules. After fulfilling his labors, Herakles arrives home to find his father, wife, and children homeless. He decides to take matters in his own hands by taking back his city from the usurpers who claimed it for their own. Since this is Greek tragedy, it cannot possibly turn out well for Herakles, or anyone else. Hera is still steamed, and sends the goddess Madness to do her dirty work. This translation has been somewhat modernized, but it was done in a way that doesn't sound as abrasive as some; there are phrases that don't sound particularly Greek to me, but neither do they sound like a millennial. The biggest clunker was the constant "I could care less", which is, of course, the exact opposite of the meaning of the phrase in context, which really was "I couldn't care less". Overall, readable, but you have to be careful not to get lost in the long expository speeches. ( )
