This book contains the Greek text of eight plays of Euripides edited by Johann Gottfried Hermann (1772-1848): Hecuba (1831), Iphigenia in Aulide (1831), Iphigenia Taurica (1833), Helena (1837), Andromacha (1838), Cyclops (1838), Phoenissae (1811), and Orestes (1841). The plays were published individually by Hermann and collected together at a later date. The Greek text of each play is supported by a critical apparatus containing a selection of variant readings between manuscripts and between printed editions. Each play is introduced by a Latin preface, discussing interpretative and text-critical issues and Hermann's theories on Greek poetic metre. Hermann's metrical theories had a significant impact on his editorial decisions and on the choices he made between variant readings in each play, and they influenced the direction of later Euripidean scholarship. Hermann's critical texts and prefaces therefore continue to be read by successive generations of scholars and students.
