Jump to: navigation search A statue of Euripides. Euripides Ancient Greek ) (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 what was thought to be a nineteenth, Rhesus , was probably not by Euripides. Fragments, some substantial, of most of the other plays also survive. More of his plays have survived than those of Aeschylus and Sophocles together, partly because of the chance preservation of a manuscript that was probably part of a complete collection of his works in alphabetical order. Euripides is known primarily for having reshaped the formal structure of traditional Attic tragedy by showing strong women characters and intelligent slaves , and by satirizing many heroes of Greek mythology . His plays seem modern by comparison with those of his contemporaries, focusing on the inner lives and motives of his characters in a way previously unknown to Greek audiences.

2. Euripides (c. 480-406 B.C.)
Biography of Greek playwright euripides, plus links to all of his works currently in print.
Euripides Euripides was exposed early to the religion he would so stubbornly question as an adult. As a child, he served as cup-bearer to the guild of dancers who performed at the altar of Apollo. The son of an influential family, he was also exposed to the great thinkers of the dayincluding Anaxagoras, the Ionian philosopher who maintained that the sun was not a golden chariot steered across the sky by some elusive god, but rather a fiery mass of earth or stone. The radical philosopher had a profound effect on the young poet, and left with him a passionate love of truth and a curious, questioning spirit. Always a lover of truth, Euripides forced his characters to confront personal issues, not just questions of State. In many ways, he is the forerunner of the modern psychological dramatist. In Hippolytus and The Bacchae , he explores the psyche of men attempting to deny a natural life-force such as sexuality or emotional release. In another timeless classic, Medea , he takes a penetrating look at the frenzied jealousy of a woman who has lost the interest of her middle-aged husband. Perhaps his finest contribution to world drama, however, was the introduction of the common man to the stage. Even his traditional nobles such as Agamemnon and Menelaus were anti-heroic, almost as if he wanted to show the Athenian people what their beloved military heroes were really like.

"The sure sign of the general decline of an art," says Macaulay, "is the frequent occurence, not of deformity, but of misplaced beauty. In general tragedy is corrupted by eloquence." This symptom is especially conspicuous in Euripides, who is constantly sacrificing propriety for rhetorical display; so that we are sometimes in doubt whether we are reading the lines of a poet or the speeches of an orator. Yet it is this very quality which has in all ages made him a much greater favorite than Aeschylus or Sophocles ; it is this which made tragi-comedy so easy and natural under his treatment; which recommended him to Menander as the model for his new comedy, and to Quintilian as the model for oratory. In the middle ages he was far better known than his two great contemporaries; for this was an era when scholastic subtleties were mistaken for eloquence, minute distinctions for science, and verbal quibbles for proficiency in dramatic art. Pitiable also is his habit of punning, as in the Bacchae where his Greek may be rendered, "Take heed lest Pentheus makes your mansion a pent-house of grief." Even Shakespeare, the most incorrigible of punsters, has nothing worse than this. Yet Aeschylus is fully as bad, speaking for instance of Helen in his

11th Brittanica: Euripides
EURIPIDES (480-406 B.C.), the great Greek dramatic poet, was born in 480 B.C., on the very day, according to the legend, of the Greek victory at Salamis, where his Athenian parents had taken refuge; and a whimsical fancy has even suggested that his name- son of Euripus- was meant to commemorate the first check of the Persian fleet at Artemisium. His father Mnesarchus was at least able to give him a liberal education; it was a favourite taunt with the comic poets that his mother Clito had been a herbseller-a quaint instance of the tone which public satire could then adopt with plausible effect. At first he was intended, we are told, for the profession of an athlete,- a calling of which he has recorded his opinion with something like the courage of Xenophanes. He seems also to have essayed painting; but at fiveandtwenty he brought out his first play, the Peliodes, Melanippe (Nauck, Frag., 4953

    Euripides Who Was Euripides?: Euripides was an ancient Greek writer of tragedies the third of the famous trio (with Sophocles and Aeschylus ). He wrote about women and mythological themes like Medea and Helen of Troy. In addition to his effect on the writing of tragedy, Euripides is considered to have been a significant influence on the Greek creation of New Comedy. Euripides - Life and Career: A contemporary of Sophocles, Euripides was born around 484. His first competition was in 455 when he came in third. His initial first prize came in 442, but out of about 92 plays, he won only four more first prizes the last, posthumously. For generations after his death, however, he was the most popular of the three great tragedians.

    EURIPIDES (C. 485 - 406 B.C.) The following biography was originally published in Minute History of the Drama THERE is more unadulterated gossip about Euripides than about either Sophocles or Aeschylus : about his birth, which for the sake of connecting him with the battle of Salamis and thus with the careers of Aeschylus and Sophocles, gossip tries to place in 480 B.C.; about his parentage, probably due to scurrilous remarks in the comedies of Aristophanes referring to them as "hucksters" and "green grocers"; about his youth, when, according to unfounded report, he was trained for a professional wrestler; and, finally, about his marriage, wherein rumor represented him as finding both his first and second wives unfaithful. All this can be ascribed to the fact that ancient biography resorted to invention in order to connect the poet's writings with supposed personal experiences and thus assign a reason for them. From all the confusion a few facts stand out. Euripides in temperament was just the opposite of Sophocles . . . of a studious and retiring disposition, fond of the companionship of intimate friends, but averse to general society. A favorite retreat was a grotto that looked out upon the sea. Here in complete retirement he liked to study and write. From numerous allusions of contemporary writers, we know, too, that his library was celebrated for its completeness. Of the three great tragic poets of Greece, Euripides was by far the most modern. As the first of the "realists" he brought realism in clothes, conversation and character to the Greek stage. He was a pioneer in tragi-comedy

    euripides is known primarily for having reshaped the formal structure of traditional Attic tragedy by showing strong women characters and smart slaves,
    480 - 406 BC Euripides was one of the three great tragedians of classical Athens, along with Aeschylus and Sophocles. He is believed to have written over 90 plays, 18 of which are extant (it is now widely believed that a nineteenth, Rhesus, was written by someone else). Fragments of most of the other plays survive, some of them substantial. More of his plays have survived than those of Aeschylus and Sophocles together, partly because of the chance preservation of a manuscript that was probably part of a complete collection of his works. Euripides is known primarily for having reshaped the formal structure of traditional Attic tragedy by showing strong women characters and smart slaves, and by satirizing many heroes of Greek mythology. Private life His mother's name was Cleito, and his father's either Mnesarchus or Mnesarchides. Evidence suggests that Euripides' family was comfortable financially. He had a wife named Melito, and together they had three sons. It is rumored that he also had a daughter, but she was killed after a rabid dog attacked her. Some call this rumor a joke that Aristophanes, a comic writer who often poked fun at Euripides, wrote about him. However, many historians fail to see the humor in this and believe it is indeed true. Public life The record of Euripides' public life, other than his involvement in dramatic competitions, is almost non-existent. There is no reason or historical evidence to believe that he travelled to Syracuse, Sicily or engaged himself in any other public or political activities during his lifetime, or left Athens at the invitation of king Archelaus II and stayed with him in Macedonia after 408 BC.

    Euripides' apology to Helen for all the nasty things he wrote about her in his other plays. Helen here is as charming, beautiful and witty as she is in the Odyssey - the centre of this puzzling play. I'm not even going to try assigning the play to a definite genre. It is obvious that it is not a tragedy like Bacchae or Hippolytus ; of Euripides' other plays it's perhaps nearest in style to Ion . A situation is set up which we are led to expect will lead to tragedy - but thanks to an amazing plot twist, all turns out well. Shakespeare wrote similar dramas, which he was allowed to call comedies -

The last of Athens' great tragic poets is Euripides, who is rare among ancient authors because he apparently did not take part in public life. It may be true that he lived as a recluse. His plays are more exuberant than those of Sophocles and Aeschylus ; often, he has the heroes and heroines face difficult choices, which are finally solved by the sudden appearance of a god ( deus ex machina Medea is probably his most famous play, the Trojan Women can be interpreted as a protest against warfare, Heracles is a Camus-like play about heroism - the greatest act of bravery is accepting life with all its misery.
