Medea, a performance history

Medea, a performance history is a multimedia open-access ebook about the production history of Euripides’ Medea. The ebook draws on a unique collection of archival material and research at the APGRD and uses images, film, unique interviews and digital objects to tell the story of a play that has inspired countless interpretations, onstage and onscreen, in dance, drama and opera across the globe from antiquity to the present.

iBook (for Apple devices)

An iBook version is free to download via Apple Books

iTunes states that to view this book you must have an iPad with iBooks 2 and iOS 5 or later, or an iPhone with iOS 8.4 or later, or a Mac with OS X 10.9 or later. However, we have discovered that, for Mac, the hyperlinks designed to move you across different sections/chapters and the interactive map may require OS X 10.10 or later in order to work properly. If you are using older systems you may need to update your software.

eBook (for non-Apple devices)

An EPUB version of the ebook for all other devices, is free to download directly here: DOWNLOAD EBOOK

The EPUB3 version, which due to the limitations of the software has fewer interactive features than the iBook, should be compatible with most standard ebook-readers. The two most popular ebook readers, which can both be downloaded for free, are Readium (an app which operates inside Google Chrome) and Adobe Digital Editions 4.5 (older versions of ADE will need to be upgraded to view APGRD ebooks). Once you have an appropriate ebook-reader installed, download the ePub file via the download link above and then open with your preferred reader. Our thanks to Chris Jennings for converting our iBook into an EPUB.
