This is the first major critical study of three late plays of Euripides: Helen, Andromeda, and Iphigenia among the Taurians. Matthew Wright offers a sustained reading of the plays, arguing that they are a thematically connected trilogy. He re-examines central themes such as myth, geography, cultural identity, philosophy, religion, and (crucially) genre. These are not separate topics, but are seen as being joined together to form an intricate nexus of ideas. The book has implications for our view of Euripides and the tragic genre as a whole.

...one of [Wright's] many excellences is the way that he, like Euripides, takes nothing for granted, and asks penetrating questions about the relationship between tragedy, philosophy and Euripides...this is an important book for its willingness to question conventional wisdom and it should be read by anyone interested in Greek tragedy and its relationship to philosophy. * Sophie Mills, Journal of Hellenic Studies 126, Reviews of Books 158 *
