    "This play is a must-read because it displays that the knowledge we have of the human condition has not changed since before printed literature began. Glimpses of common struggles, trials, and triumphs of life are just some of what this book has to offer, as relevant to now as ancient times."

    "The Phoenician Women is a good Euripides play, one of my favorites. It holds up well after all these years. It has good characters and shows the folly of war. This is a good translation of a classic Greek tragedy. "

    "This solution is sufficient as it provides information that the play was written by Euripides. It also provides information on the publish date and who published/translated it. I don't believe that there is much more that this response needs."

    "Electra is, in my opinion, one of the best plays by Euripides. I thought that the family aspect made the story quite intriguing. In fact, I was absorbed throughout the entire play. I'm thinking about taking the entire family next time and will always remember my experience watching it."
