Euripides' "Cyclops" is the only complete surviving example of a Satyric drama. The Satyr-play drama has a nature entirely of its own, neither tragic nor comic, but something between the two. Its most distinctive feature is its chorus of Satyrs, strange creatures, half goat and half men, the attendants of Dionysus. This edition was originally published by Cambridge University Press and is intended for students who have previously read little or no Greek drama. The notes provide linguistic help and more difficult verb forms are given separately in the vocabulary. There is also an additional vocabulary of particles and of cases to assist the relative beginner. Literary questions raised by the play are dealt with and the role of the Satyr-play in the growth of Greek tragedy is explored.
