A collection of essays written by leading academics on, plus an English translation of, one of the world's most important dramas.
David Stuttard is founder of the theatre company, Actors of Dionysus, translator of numerous Greek plays, and author of titles including Parthenon, Power and Politics on the Acropolis (2013), Looking at Lysistrata (Bloomsbury, 2010) and The Romans Who Shaped Britain (2012).
With his collection of essays and his beautiful and faithful translation, David Stuttard not only gently guides non-specialist readers into Euripides' tragic play but also opens new perspectives to specialists of the field. The editor has thus faced the challenge to offer fresh original insights into one "of the most often read, studied and performed of all Greek tragedies." * Caliban: French Journal of English Studies * Looking at Medea presents an accurate and performable translation together with twelve useful and sometimes illuminating interpretative perspectives on the play. Euripides' Medea emerges by consensus of the contributors as a bold and innovative work of art that is and was profoundly disturbing. -- N.J. Sewell-Rutter, Oxford Tutorial College, UK * Bryn Mawr Classical Review * Stuttard has produced a companion to the play which is extremely accessible and helpful . . . The end result is an enjoyable and wide-ranging overview of current scholarship on this tragedy and its afterlife, accompanied by a clear and accurate translation. -- Lyndsay Coo, University of Bristol, UK * The Anglo-Hellenic Review, no. 50 * A wonderfully accessible guide to a dazzling play. David Stuttard's introduction and translation, along with critical essays by twelve different scholars, offer richly varied ways of looking at Medea. * Pat Easterling, Regius Professor Emeritus of Greek, University of Cambridge *
