 About the Book 

Euripides THE TROJAN WOMEN is considered by many to be the greatest of anti-war plays. Rubenstein, whose translation of AGAMEMNON, has been acclaimed, has now translated Euripides masterpiece in clear American English. Aristophanes and AristotleMoreEuripides THE TROJAN WOMEN is considered by many to be the greatest of anti-war plays. Rubenstein, whose translation of AGAMEMNON, has been acclaimed, has now translated Euripides masterpiece in clear American English. Aristophanes and Aristotle (and some modern critics as well) objected to the original prologue and choral odes on the grounds that they were irrelevant to the play. Rubenstein has written a prologue and choral odes that are relevant, in addition to being lucid. In addition, Rubenstein has added stage directions, as he did in the case of AGAMEMNON which enhances the plays readability and playability.
