Famous Greek tragedies, all with female protagonists. Euripides tells classic stories, often with a new twist, such as his rendition of the story of Helen, which puts Helen in a position of innocence compared to classic Trojan War stories. These plays render the world of women with sympathy and a depth of understanding that would be astounding even today. In many cases, such as the story of Electra, he manages to catch ambiguities, and gives each woman a chance to defend her actions. A good addition to anyone's classics collection. ( )
