The theme is really a double one: the suffering of the victims of war, exemplified by the woman who survive the fall of Troy, and the degradation of the victors, shown by the Greeks' reckless and ?id=Euripides. A bold new translation of this shockingly modern classic work by Forward Prize-winning poet, Robin Robertson. This stunning translation, by the acclaimed poet Robin Robertson (Forward Prize, Man Booker shortlist ), has reinvigorated Euripides' devastating take of a god's revenge for contemporary readers, bringing the ancient verse to fervid, brutal ://

Depicting Herakles slowly going mad A new production of Medea recently opened at London’s National Theatre to critical acclaim. This is a Medea definitively set in the modern era: the production opens with two little boys watching
