Summary (From the publisher):

Though believed by some that Rhesos is not by Euripides, it is nonetheless a more than capable play with many beautiful aspects to it: exquisite lyrics, as in the morning song of the guards, and the authentic and effective picture of life in the Trojan camp somewhere between Troy itself and the Greek encampment. It is the story of how the Trojans send the young soldier Dolon to spy on the Greeks, at the same time that DiomÍdes and Odysseus are sent out on a counter mission, to spy on the Trojans. They meet the young Dolon, kill him, and then, with the very helpful assistance of AthÍna, are prompted to forego their attempt to kill the Trojan HÍktor and kill instead the just arrived Trojan ally Rhesos and his troops, for if he lives till morning nothing can stop him from charging and destroying the Greek fleet.

Rhesos (1992)
Edition Details:

The Greek Tragedy in New Translations series is based on the conviction that only translators who write poetry themselves, or who work in collaboration with poets, can properly re-create the celebrated and timeless tragedies of the great Greek writers. These new translations are more than faithful to the original text, going beyond the literal meaning in order to evoke the poetic intensity and rich metaphorical texture of the Greek language.
