A new translation of Euripides' play in which the young hero, a foundling engaged to keep the Temple of Apollo tidy, meets the Queen of Athens. She tells him of "a friend" who was seduced by Apollo and had a baby which she abandoned. After a series of twists and turns, mother and son are reunited.
Euripides is the youngest and most controversial of the three surviving great tragedians from fifth century Athens. His works include Medea, the Trojan Women, the Bacchae, Iphigenia at Aulis and Hippolytus. His polemic, charged plays with their universal themes and significance remain highly relevant to today's society.
