520    Human sacrifice, a spirited heroine, a quest ending in a 
       hairsbreadth escape, the touching reunion of long-lost 
       siblings and exquisite poetry - these features have 
       historically made Euripides' 'Iphigenia in Tauris' one of 
       the most influential of Greek tragedies. With this book, 
       Edith Hall provides a much-needed cultural history of this
       play, giving as much weight to the impact of the play on 
       subsequent Greek and Roman art and literature as on its 
       manifestations since the discovery of the sole surviving 
       medieval manuscript in the 1500s. 
520    "This monograph is a cultural history of the performance, 
       reception and influence of the ancient Greek tragedy 
       Iphigenia in Tauris by Euripides. First produced in the 
       late 5th century BCE in Athens, this play was one of the 
       most influential of all the canonical classical dramas in 
       antiquity until the fourth century CE and in the period 
       between the Renaissance and the early 20th century. It 
       dramatises the escape of the Greek siblings Iphigenia and 
       Orestes, with Orestes' friend Pylades, from the barbarian 
       community of the Taurians on the north coast of the Black 
       Sea, bringing with them an ancient statue of Artemis. The 
       book explores the extent and diversity of the play's 
       cultural impact diachronically. Its first half documents 
       and analyses the reasons for the popularity of the play in
       antiquity, appearing in Greek and Roman poetry, fiction, 
       philosophy, vase-painting, murals, sarcophagus art, and on
       coins. The second half discusses the influence of the play
       since the Renaissance, with particular attention to 
       Gluck's Iphigenie en Tauride, Goethe's Iphigenie auf 
       Tauris, Frazer's The Golden Bough, Gilbert Murray's 
       Edwardian translation and more recent feminist and 
       postcolonial adaptations"--Home page.
