Immerso nella storia del suo tempo, il teatro di Euripide prende senso attraverso alcune folgoranti e reticenti intuizioni di Tucidide di cui, a sua volta, illumina, con tutte le diffrazioni di cui è capace, il non detto. Alimentata dell'immaginario custodito nei vari rami della tradizione e del patrimonio di saperi accumulati dall'epica e dall'etnografia, fino a Erodoto, ...more

Euripides' is one of only three Ancient Greek tragedians with surviving plays. The plays by the earliest, Aeschylus, remind me of a ancient frieze--not stilted exactly, but still stylized, very formal. The plays by Sophocles, in the middle chronologically are less so--he was credited with adding a third actor onstage, deemphasizing the chorus and allowing for more conflict. But it's the last of the three, Euripides, who to me seems the most natural, the most modern. Only 19 of some ninety-odd pl ...more

Again, read a tome which goodreads has not, so some light bib action first:

Euripides Plays Vol 1, translated by A.S. Way, Intro'd J. Warrington. Everyman's Library No. 63, 1966.

Okay, now that's out of the way, the following were read: Medea, Hippolytus.

Medea - Tale of Jason's (of Argonaut fame) scorned witch-sorceress trophy wife. Lesson learned, do not ditch your old lady for the promise of wealth and power. A most thoed tale, indeed.

Hippolytus - Tale of trouble in Theseus' (of gorgon slayin'

Eurípides es, sin duda, uno de los mejores trágicos griegos debido a la profundidad psicológica de sus personajes y a la carencia de carga religiosa de sus obras. Es una lástima que en su época fuese un incomprendido.

Tan misóginos los antiguos griegos que hasta me dan risa. Eso sí, qué bien saben de dolores y de penas. Eurípides resultó más gráfico al describir muertes violentas de lo que me imaginaba.

(Greek: Ευριπίδης )
Euripides (Ancient Greek: Εὐριπίδης) (ca. 480 BC–406 BC) was the last of the three great tragedians of classical Athens (the other two being Aeschylus and Sophocles). Ancient scholars thought that Euripides had written ninety-five plays, although four of those were probably written by Critias. Eighteen of Euripides' plays have survived complete. It is now widely believed that wh
