This is the Medea we have been waiting for. It offers clarity without banality, eloquence without pretension, meter without doggerel, accuracy without clumsiness.
No English Medea can ever be Euripides', but this is as close as anyone has come so far, and a good deal closer than I thought anyone would ever come.
Arnson Svarlien has shown herself exceedingly skillful in making Euripides sound Euripidean.--David M.
