Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the plays of Euripides: Electra and Iphigenia in Taurus. It deals specifically with the lines 432-86 of Electra and lines 827-99 of Iphigenia in Taurus. Three of Euripides' surviving plays have Orestes (with Pylades) and a sister as principal characters. Having edited and translated two of them, it may be considered appropriate that Professor Cropp should be honoured with a contribution from the editor of the third such play. As always in Euripides, especially in the 'Alphabetic' plays, there are numerous troubling issues for the textual critic; and Electra gets into its stride with a controversial opening verse. But, apart from a footnote on that, the author confines himself to discussion of sundry issues, familiar and less familiar, in the First Stasimon of Electra (especially the first pair of stanzas) and in the 'reunion' amoibaion and monody in Iphigenia in Taurus.

Keywords: Electra 432-86; Iphigenia in Taurus 827-99; Euripides
