Euripides' Cyclops is the only example of Attic satyr-drama which survives intact. It is a brilliant dramatisation of the
famous story from Homer's Odyssey of how Odysseus blinded the Cyclops after making him drunk. The play has much to teach us,
not just about satyr-drama, but also about the reception and adaptation of Homer in classical Athens; the brutal savagery
of the Homeric monster is here replaced by an ironised presentation of Athenian social custom. Problems of syntax, metre and
language are fully explained, and there is a sophisticated literary discussion of the play. This edition will be of interest
to advanced undergraduates and graduate students studying Greek literature, as well as to scholars.
