Editorial Reviews

Review


"In this superb and richly detailed study, Adventures with Iphigenia in Tauris, Edith Hall has orchestrated, with impassioned and assiduous attention, this remarkable afterlife of Iphigenia."--Marina Warner, The Times Literary Supplement


"Hall takes readers on a fascinating exploration of the reception history of Euripides's Iphigenia in Tauris (IT). A foremost authority on Greek tragedy, Hall displays her erudition as she examines how IT has influenced drama and other artistic media from the fifth century BCE to the present.... This scholarly volume will appeal to a wide audience, including classicists, social historians, and general readers. Highly Recommended."--S. E. Goins, CHOICE


"From the Crimea to California, from Euripides to Pina Bausch, brave Iphigenia survives in every era and medium. Edith Hall's wonderful study of the entire tradition finds her now suffering as a victim of modern colonialism, now masquerading as Princess Leia. Broad-ranging and richly erudite, it is a joyous discovery."--Richard P. Martin, Stanford University


"With characteristic panache and immense erudition, Edith Hall takes us on a fascinating journey through a broad sweep of time and place to offer a fresh assessment of Euripides' least well-known play and its cultural aftermath. One of the most influential plays in pagan antiquity, this emotionally complex drama has been largely overlooked outside the academy over the past several decades. By exploring the variant readings, visual images and inter-texts that emanate from the play, Hall puts Euripides' Black Sea tragedy back on the map and demonstrates its continued relevance for today."--Laura McClure, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This publication went well beyond what I expected it to. Not only was the myth and original tragedy explored in great detail, but the author walked me through the history of the play well into the modern day. Its use as an original tragedy by other authors (both modern and historical) is well explained, not to mention surprising in many cases. Most notably, this was a fun read, not dry, and very engaging from cover to cover.
