Medea, whose magical powers helped Jason and the Argonauts take the Golden Fleece, remains one the strongest female characters ever to appear on stage. In the play she kills her own children-a desperate and powerful act. Nicholas Rudall's deft translation for contemporary audiences provides new insight into this classic story.

Editorial Reviews

Rudall's text...admirably recasts Euripides' play in modern American English.... Rudall avoids all the annoying, dusty Victorianisms of 19th century translators.
