Review

"Taplin's eminently readable version of this harrowing tragedy justifies his reputation as one of our foremost experts in dramatic criticism, whose pioneering efforts in illuminating ancient stagecraft remain indispensable today."--Froma Zeitlin, Princeton University

"Euripides's influential and provocative "Medea" continues to be read, performed, adapted, and reinterpreted in multiple contexts across the globe. Taplin's accessible and performable, yet vivid and poetic translation makes the play available to a modern audience while doing justice to both its complexities and its horrific power."--Helene P. Foley, Barnard College, Columbia University

"Taplin translates "Medea" into clear and contemporary English while reflecting well the different registers and tones that create the subtle texture of Greek tragedy. His version is eminently speakable, but also highly faithful to the original Greek, making it ideal for instructors and readers who want to study closely the specific metaphors and terms that carry the classic themes of this influential drama."--Donald J. Mastronarde, University of California, Berkeley

I was expecting a new translation with a forward not a complete rewriting of Medea which this is. Its alright if you want to read a modern take on divorce and extreme behaviour.

Excellent readable and exciting. So many parallels with life now . I decided to reread the classics and its like retiring to a land populated with old friends with all their dreams and disasters.

Be careful if you order the Kindle version. It is just the text of the play - with no introduction or notes. Also, the translation does not even seem to be Taplin's. Disappointing.
