Hanna M. Roisman is professor of classics at Colby College. She is the author of The Odyssey Reformed (with F. Ahl) and Loyalty in Early Greek Epic and Tragedy, as well as the editor of several other books.
Roisman discusses an impressive amount of secondary literature in a clearly structured way and concludes the book with two small, but useful indices. Hew style is precise, to the point, and pleasant to read. This monograph provides a convincing and thought-provoking interpretation and should be a 'must' for everyone who is seriously interested in Euripidean tragedy. It fully deserves its own place within the canon of other long established views.
— Scholia Reviews
Roisman challenges orthodox ways of reading Greek tragedy . . . This, then, is a volume . . . for the mature scholar, who will enjoy the process of testing Roisman's hypotheses [and] evaluating their unusual implications . . .
