Grene's a great translator, and this might be my favorite of his Euripides series. That Medea...whew, she was angry, eh? I've hung more than a few quotes from these four plays on my office wall. This is a great book for those initially intimidated by the classics, by the way, because it reads quickly and it's not that long. Essentially, Euripides created brilliant dramatic meditations on everyday life. Give him a shot.
