Euripides: The Hecuba of Euripides, from the text, and with a translation of the notes, preface, and supplement of Porson; critical and explanatory remarks original and selected: illustrations of idioms from Matthiæ, Dawes, Viger, Hermann, etc., etc. A synopsis of metrical systems; examination questions, and copious indexes. Hecuba, Paperback by Euripides; Harrison, Tony (TRN), ISBN , ISBN , Brand New, Free shipping in the US One of the most powerful dramas ever written, Hecuba is a vital examination of the psychology of the powerful and the powerless in time of conflict.

  Hecuba review – a radically different take on a familiar story Behind the play lies the larger point that Hecuba is the victimised embodiment of a rich Trojan culture while the Greeks are. Hecuba or Hecabe was the queen of Troy in Greek mythology, wife of King Priam and mother to nineteen children, the most famous of them being Hector, Paris and Cassandra.. She was the daughter of King Dymas of Phrygia and the Naiad Euagora. Other alternatives are also given by various sources around who her parents were.

Like Euripides' Trojan Women, this play takes place after the sack of Troy. Hecuba, widow of King Priam, suffers the loss of her daughter Polyxena and her son Polydore, and is hungry for revenge on those who have wronged her. Summary by Elizabeth Klett Cast of Characters: Ghost of Polydore: Rob Board Hecuba: Elizabeth Klett Chorus: Rapunzelina. Hecuba has emerged as a profound exploration of the difficulties of establishing justice and a stable morality in post-war situations. This book investigates the play's changing critical and theatrical reception from Antiquity to the present, its mythical and political background, its dramatic and thematic unity, and the role of its choruses.
