The three plays in this volume straddle the borders between comedy and tragedy

Alkestis is a moving "romance" with death and has parallels to Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale

Helen, an alternative version of the tragic portrayal of the Trojan War, shows Helen "relocated in a delightful comedy" - as an innocent victim of her own beauty, hidden in Egypt by the gods while her image has been abducted by Paris

In Ion a father who thought he was childless discovers his son, and a son who thought he was motherless finds his mother
