About Book

Book Description

In danger of losing his command, Agamemnon considers sacrificing his daughter to the gods. How far will he go to save face and secure victory in the East?

Don Taylor's faithful translation contemplates the morality of war, a theme as valid today as when the play was written, over 2,000 years ago.

Don Taylor was a poet and playwright. His translation of Iphigenia was produced to great acclaim in summer 2004 at the National Theatre. He died in 2003.

CLYTAEMNESTRA: I am not so void of sense; bethink thee, I shall go through this as well, when I lead the maiden from the chamber to the sound of the marriage-hymn; wherefore I chide thee not; but custom will combine with time to make the smart grow less.
