This full-scale critical edition of Seneca's Medea offers a substantial introduction, a new Latin text, an English verse translation designed for both performance and serious study, and a detailed commentary on the play which is exegetic, analytic, and interpretative. The aim throughout has been to elucidate the text dramatically as well as philologically, and to locate the play firmly in its contemporary historical and theatrical context and in the ensuing literary and dramatic tradition.
Anthony James Boyle is Professor of Classics at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. He has been editor of the Classical literary journal, Ramus, since its inception in 1972.
