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.

No I don't! Surely you know my ways! A P O L L O . Yes — ways hateful to mortals and hated by the gods. D E A T H . You mustn't expect to have everything you're not entitled to! A P O L L O . Even you, I swear, will have to yield, for all your savage spirit: such a one will come to the house of Pheres, when Eurystheus sends him to bring the team of Thracian horses from their wintry home, such a hero who, after being entertained in Admetus' halls, will forcefully wrest this woman from you. Then, with no gratitude from us, you'll do all we ask you now — and still have earned our hate.
Look! Here she is coming out of the house and her husband with her. —— Lament, make moan, Ο land of Pheres, for this noblest of women, now wasting away in illness to Hades 'neath the earth!
