Inhaltsangabe: Modern versions of three Greek tragedies; Euripides' The Trojan Women, Euripides' Medea, and Sophocles' Antigone. ""There is an Irish lability to Kennelly's words, a kind of garrulous quality that makes these versions uniquely Irish when compared with the stark, 'classical' quality of some other versions. Full of war, death, divorce, and imprisonment, these plays seem as ripped from the headlines as nightly television dramas, as ubiquitous as nightmares."" --Booklist
