Review

'... predictably fine, thoughtful and polished ... a nicely self-contained teaching-tool ... Throughout, Mastronarde displays virtues known from his previous activity as a commentator: clarity of exposition; fairness in the treatment of controversial issues; philological acumen; command of the primary and secondary literature ... a keen eye for the theatrical dimension of drama; and an openness to engage with broader, and often complex, non-philological aspects of interpretation.' Mouseion, Journal of the Classical Association of Canada 'We may confidently say now that future students will face a less difficult task thanks to the work of D. J. Mastronarde, whose knowledge of Greek theatre and uncommon talent as a teacher have combined to produce a most valuable book. It is easy to foresee that students will be grateful to M. for his admirably concise and useful treatment of language, style and metre ... Mastronarde's book is an outstanding contribution to the understanding of Medea and a valuable introduction to Greek tragedy as a whole. It deserves to take pride of place on the shelves of Euripidean scholars beside the time-honoured commentary of Page.' Journal of Hellenic Studies '... this series has consistently proven itself to provide high quality commentaries for teaching Greek texts in the original. Mastronarde's fine work does not disappoint. ... this is a volume which will prove very useful to students of Greek tragedy in the original and will also be a valuable resource for professional colleagues.' Hermathena
