This copy was only one pence!! It was in excellent condition with all the pages intact and the cover was undamaged too. There was some highlighting in part of the book and some notes in the margin, but the description had indicated this before I bought it. Super value as I needed it for a course I am doing and it has saved me a lot of money out of my book budget.Also it is a great read! Try it and see. Highly recommended.

Medea's always been my favourite woman in greek myth - its easy to dismiss her as a villain but she's just such a complex individual - one minute you feel sorry for her, then you think she deserves everything she gets, then you dont know what to think! Whats not to like?
Euripides is easily the best of the greek playwrights in my humble opinion and I cant find fault with any of the plays in this book - the chacrters here are all so exreme - he shows us how quickly human fortune can change and makes us care about the characters, so long after the plays were written - if you like crazy females then this is definitely the book for you! Apart from Medea, one can hardly call Electra and Hecabe stable, and given all theyve been through who can blame them?

Warning! This is NOT the set text for A330, although the amazon search engine will bring this up if you put the ISBN in from the set book list. Dozens of students landed up with the incorrect version. And it has happened year in, year out.
Brilliant read though.
