Euripides’ Medea

1. Euripides’ Medea commentary (10.4 mb pdf, 1st edition, rev. Jan 2020) 

The 1st edition of Euripides’ Medea: Greek Text with Facing Vocabulary and Commentary is now available on Amazon for 14.95. 

2. Student Translation sheets (.5 mb, pdf., 71 pages)

This pdf contains the Greek text with lined spaces (20 lines per page) for the entire tragedy. The purpose of this ancillary is twofold:(a) to enable readers to write out translations and make annotations in an organized format, and (b) to allow instructors to assign translation assignments, scansion practice, and parsing exercises on organized handouts that are easy to assess and grade.

3. Core Vocabulary (8 or more times) Flashcards in .ppt format (300kb, .zip, .ppt)

4. Recommended commentary

The commentary above is supposed to complement, not replace, an advanced-level commentary. For a more nuanced analysis of the play, I recommend Donald Mastronarde’s Euripides: Medea ( 2002), which I have linked to below:
