This new translation of Medea by classicist Oliver Taplin, originally published as part of the acclaimed third edition of Chicagoâs Complete Greek Tragedies, brilliantly replicates the musicality and strength of Euripidesâs verse while retaining the playâs dramatic and emotional impact.Â Taplin has created an edition of Medea that is particularly suited to performance, while not losing any of the power it has long held as an object of reading or study. This edition is poised to become the new standard, and to introduce a new generation of readers to the heights and depths of Greek tragedy.
