There are some great lines in here and the prologues before each play help set up the scenes. They are easy to read and understand and far more digestible than I remember Greek tragedy being in high school. I would have preferred these I think, as they are fairly short, easy to understand, and there is good pretext. Euripides is translated clearly and succinctly and so the narrative is easy to follow. I would have preferred to read these in a class, as there is much there for fruitful discussion.
