Alcestis
by Euripides
Alcestis is one of the earliest surviving works of the Greek playwright Euripides. The play was probably first produced at the Dionysia in the year 438 BC, well into the author's career. It is sometimes characterized as a satyr play and sometimes as a melodrama.
Excerpted from Alcestis on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.'As with all ancient Greek dramas, the correct interpretation of Alcestis may vary, given the original work's condition and the current study of ancient Greek language. Therefore, varying English translations exist.
