"In classical mythology, Phaethon is the child of the sun god
Helios, who tries to drive his father's chariot and is killed in
the attempt. Euripides explains how this happened: Helios had
seduced Phaeton's mother - already betrothed to another - and as
the price of her seduction had promised to grant her a favour. As
an adult Phaethon claims the promise and asks to drive his father's
chariot, with disastrous consequences...Only a quarter of
Euripides' original version of Phaethon has survived. Alistair
Elliot has translated these surviving 327 lines and reconstructed
the rest, staying as faithful as possible to Euripides' time and
way of thinking. The result is something very like finding a lost
Euripides play, unperformed since the fifth century BC and
amounting to a new masterpiece."
