Alcestis

T0875264203
A Queen, Alcestis, gives up her life to save her king. The King, wracked by guilt, contemplates a future without her. But will Apollo's prediction that Alcestis will return from the dead come true? Poignant, tragic and intensely moving, with episodes of burlesque comedy, Alcestis is a potent drama based on a Greek play by Euripedes. Ted Hughes brings his talents as a poet and playwright to bear in this surprisingly contemporary version, filled with verbal brilliance and captivating story telling - his last masterpiece.
Author Euripedes
