2 Roisman, H. M. & C. A. E. Luschnig EURIPIDES' ELECTRA A Commentary
University of Oklahoma Press 2011 0806141190 / 9780806141190 Softcover Very Good 
Spine a little bent and creased. Pencil underlining and marginalia to some pages. ; Among the best-known Greek tragedies, Electra is also one of the plays students of Greek often read in the original language. It tells the story of how Electra and her brother, Orestes, avenge the murder of their father, Agamemnon, by their mother and her lover. H. M. Roisman and C. A. E. Luschnig have developed a new edition of this seminal tragedy designed for twenty-first-century classrooms. Included with the Greek text are a useful introduction, line-by-line commentary, and other materials in English, all intended to support intermediate and advanced undergraduate students. Electra s gripping story and almost contemporary feel help make the play accessible and interesting to modern audiences. The liberties Euripides took with the traditional myth and the playwright s attitudes toward the gods can inspire fruitful classroom discussion about fifth-century Athenian thought, manners, and morals. Roisman and Luschnig invite readers to compare Euripides treatment of the myth with those of Aeschylus and Sophocles and with variant presentations in epic and lyric poetry, later drama, and modern film. The introduction also places the play in historical context and describes conventions of the Greek theater specific to the work. Extensive appendices provide a complete metrical analysis of the play, helpful notes on grammar and syntax, an index of verbs, and a Greek-English glossary. In short, the authors have included everything students need to support and enhance their reading of Electra in its original language. ; Oklahoma Series in Classical Culture; 352 pages

3 Luschnig, C. A. E. THE GORGON'S SEVERED HEAD Studies of Alcestis, Electra, and Phoenissae
E. J. Brill 1995 9004103821 / 9789004103825 Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Very minor shelfwear to book and DJ. ; Mnemosyne, Bibliotheca Classica Batava Supplementum; 255 pages; The Gorgon's Severed Head looks at three plays of Euripides, one early, one middle and one late in his career. Innovations in genre, in the use of the traditional stories, in the representation of women and of gender issues are present at every period. In all three plays characters are depicted creating themselves and each other. Chapter One on Alcestis looks at the artistry of the two main characters and is especially concerned with finding a role for Admetus, the play's most serious problem. The second chapter treats the physical displacement of the myth in Euripides' version of the Electra-Orestes story. A last section approaches the layers of time and space in Phoenissae.
