By Euripides

Трагедия Еврипида «Алкеста» на древнегреческом с попутным английским переводом и примечаниями.
«Алкеста» была поставлена на Великие Дионисии в 438 г.до нашей эры м в составе тетралогии, в которую входили несохранившиеся трагедии «Критянки», «Алкмеон в Псофнде» и «Телеф». Поскольку «Алкеста» занимала здесь четвертое место, обычно отводимое для драмы сатиров, некоторые исследователи стремятся найти в этой драме юмористические или даже бурлескные ситуации, но такие попытки едва ли основательны: бытовой элемент, несомненно присутствующий в образе Ферета, обрисованного не без доли иронии, в принципе не отличает его существенно хотя бы от кормилицы в «Ипполите», а в этой трагедии никто не станет искать черты драмы сатиров.
