A Fresh and Wonderful Translation of a Great Story Nov. 6 2009
By BookBabe - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This thoroughly modern translation of Euripides' tale of a woman scorned's revenge will open up this classic to a whole new generation of readers. Readers will feel all the raw emotion of Medea as she develops her plans of vengeance against Jason who has dumped her in favor of a much younger woman. But this is no simple tale of a wife wronged by her husband, for Medea herself is no innocent when it comes to allowing nothing to stand in the way of what she wants. Yes, Jason is an ungrateful and self-centered wretch but does he deserve what Medea has in mind for him? Readers will undoubtedly have strong reactions. The author's inclusion of the backstory of Jason and Medea, as well as an explanation of the role of the Chorus in a Greek play of the time will greatly increase understanding and therefore enjoyment of this enduring work.

Great trandslation June 25 2012
By Jimmah - Published on
I used this edition in my ninth grade writing class. The school is inner-city, lots of troubled teens. We used it as a case where humiliation forces people into desperate acts. They saw how failing to notice a person's humanity breeds inhumanity.

The translation is perfect for instruction at the high school level.

Less expensive than most sites. The translation is the one that I needed for my class. Arrived on time! Early even!
