Presenting the complete texts of eight of the world's greatest plays, this important volume illuminates the changing concept of tragedy from Sophocles to O'Neill.   Some of the world's greatest dramas unfold on these pages. In the powerful and famous plays of Sophocles, Aeschylus, and Euripedes, Oedipus makes his disastrous marriage, Prometheus struggles against Zeus to break his painful chains, and the Love Goddess, Aphrodite, takes her revenge on the Theban prince who slighted her. Shakespeare's King Lear suffers at the hands of his two evil daughters. The great Scandinavian dramatists Ibsen and Strindberg fearlessly present stories of infidelity and social disease, while Desire under the Elms, Eugene O'Neill's savage picture of primitive desires in modern New England, rounds out this excellent anthology. Including important essays by noteworthy critics and philosophers, this book is an ideal companion to the editors' Eight Great Comedies (also available in a Meridian edition).   Featured Plays: Prometheus Unbound (Aeschylus) Oedipus the King (Sophocles) Hippolytus (Euripedes) King Lear (William Shakespeare) Ghosts (Henrik Ibsen) Miss Julie (August Strindberg) On Baile's Strand (William Butler Yeats) Desire under the Elms (Eugene O'Neill)   Also includes essays by Aristotle, Hume, Emerson, Tillyard, Richards, and Krutch.
