About the Author

Judith Mossman is Senior Lecturer in Classics at Trinity College, Dublin


Judith Mossman's collection of essays on Euripides capably illustrates the major issues in contemporary Euripidean criticism with a stimulating selection of often divergent approaches to this almost endlessly multi-faceted poet ... Mossman has produced a highly useful and thought-provoking volume. New England Classical Journal This is an excellent volume in a prestigious series, and it will certainly have an impact on Euripidean studies. Judith Mossman has shown great wisdom in her selection of articles ... It will prove extraordinarily convenient both for teachers and students to have access to them all in a single volume. The Anglo-Hellenic Review Mossman's Introduction is a model of literary sensibility, concision, elegance, and erudition, the product of many years' immersion in Euripides and his interpreters. Her book is a compulsory purchase for any school or college library. The Anglo-Hellenic Review Mossman has done a splendid job. Overall, this is an excellent selection, and a significant number of the essays convey much of the reach, range and excitement of the most tragic of the poets. So yes, this book must find a place in your library. It is an important asset. JACT Review One of the strongest features of this enjoyable and stimulating collection of essays is its editor's introduction ... It is informed with a deep sensitivity as well as a profound knowledge of and passion for the playwright. JACT Review
