Euripides, Ion: Edition and Commentary

This study undertakes to provide the reader with a new edition of Euripides` Ion and a commentary that elucidates the play as a self-contained text and a sophisticated and dramaturgically effective construct. It helps the reader understand what the Greek text means on the literal level, and how the characters act in word and deed, how their actions have been arranged by the poet in a way so that they form a coherent and stringent plot.
