Summary (From the publisher):

The scene is Thebes, and it is under attack by the Argive army led on by seven leaders, the so-called Seven against Thebes. Polyneikęs, the son of Oedipus, is fighting to win back his inheritance, namely his share in the rule of Thebes: to serve as Thebes’ king every other year in alternation with his brother Eteoklęs, the current king who will not share his throne. Iokastę, wife of Oedipus, and mother of Eteoklęs and Polyneikęs, meets with Polyneikęs to try to prevent the battle that is imminent, but in vain.

The Phoenician Women (1992)
Edition Details (From the publisher):

This translation displays the cohesion and rigid organization of this complex and much debated play. Through use of dramatic, fast-paced poetry, this version captures the original spirit of Euripides' focus on classic repercussions of fate, interspersed with the everpresent power of will. The edition is accompanied by critical introductions, expositions of translators' principles, stage directions, a glossary of mythical Greek terms, and commentary on difficult passages.
