1 Allan, William THE ANDROMACHE AND EURIPIDEAN TRAGEDY
Oxford Clarendon Press 2000 0198152973 / 9780198152972 Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Scholars' bookplate to inner cover. Light bumping to bottom corners. Very minor shelfwear. Dustjacket has minor shelfwear and rubbing. ; Oxford Classical Monographs; 328 pages; The Andromache has long been disparaged despite being a brilliant piece of theater. In this book Dr. Allan draws attention to the neglected artistry of this very impressive and intriguing text. Through careful analysis the Andromache emerges as a play that poses fundamental questions, especially about the polarity of Greek and barbarian, and the morality of the gods. Dr. Allan shows how the play also challenges revenge as a motive for action, and explores the role of women as wives, mothers, and victims of war, be they Greek or Trojan, victorious or defeated. These are among the central concerns that make the Andromache a moving and thought-provoking tragedy, full of suffering, suspense, and moral interest. This book contributes both to an appreciation of the Andromache in its own right, and to a wider understanding of the variety and quality of Euripides' oeuvre.
