Age of Reason




... Classics The Dramas of Euripides Euripides was born in Salamis in 480 B.C.E. Along with Aeschylus and Sophocles he was one of the three leading ancient writers of tragic plays. Very little is known about his personal life; it is belived that he came from a wealthy family and was politically active. Euripides left Athens in 408 B.C.E. and took up residence in Macedonia under the sponsorship of its king; he died shortly thereafter. He did not win as many competitions as Aeschylus or Sophocles, and was used as a running joke in Aristophanes' plays, where he appears as a satirical character. However his dramas became more popular than the other two 'immortals' as time went by. His greatest works are Alcestis Medea Electra and The Bacchae The Trojan Women translated by Gilbert Murray transcribed by Eliza at . Thanks Eliza!

24. Euripedes
euripides with all his faults the most tragic of the poets, said euripides is the saddest of the poets and for that very reason not the most tragic.
from The Greek Way by Edith Hamilton
EURIPIDES "with all his faults the most tragic of the poets," said Aristotle, supreme among critics, whose claim to pronounce ever the final verdict has only of late been called into question. His judgment here points the latter-day attitude toward him: the great critic was wrong; he confused sadness and tragedy. Euripides is the saddest of the poets and for that very reason not the most tragic. A very great tragedian, beyond all question, one of the world's four greatest, to all of whom belongs that strangest power, so to present the spectacle of pain that we are lifted to what we truly call the height of tragedy.
Euripides can indeed walk "those heights exalted" but the dark depths of pain are what he knows best. He is "the poet of the world's grief." He feels, as no other writer has felt, the pitifulness of human life, as of children suffering helplessly what they do not know and can never understand. No poet's ear has ever been so sensitively attuned as his to the still, sad music of humanity, a strain little heeded by that world of long ago. And together with that, something then even more unheeded, the sense of the value of each individual human being. He alone of all the classic world so felt. It is an amazing phenomenon. Out of the pages written more than twenty-three hundred years ago sound the two notes which we feel are the dominants in our world to-day, sympathy with suffering and the conviction of the worth of everyone alive. A poet of the antique world speaks to us and we hear what seems peculiarly our own.

The Greek drama began as a religious observance in honour of Dionysus. To the Greeks this god personified both spring and the vintage, the latter a very important time of year in a vine-growing country, and he was a symbol to them of that power there is in man of rising out of himself, of being impelled onwards by a joy within him that he cannot explain, but which makes him go forward, walking, as it were, on the wings of the wind, of the spirit that fills him with a deep sense of worship. We call this power enthusiasm , a Greek word which simply means

Euripides for Kids - an ancient Greek playwright
Euripides was the youngest of the three great tragic playwrights of classical Athens. He lived in the last part of the 400's BC , during the Peloponnesian War . He competed against Sophocles in many dramatic competitions, and sometimes Euripides won, and sometimes Sophocles. Many of Euripides' plays, like Medea and Phaedra , have important female characters, and he is sometimes thought of as very sympathetic to women and thinking that women should be treated more fairly. But this is probably not true, or only partly true. Euripides is using women to represent the irrational , or craziness, not thinking, following your nature instead of your mind. The action in the plays is between this irrational female character, and a rational man. But it is not always the rational man who wins. Euripides insists that we all must acknowledge both sides of ourselves, the animal and the godly, and not pretend that we can always rule our bodies with our minds, like Star Trek's Vulcans. In the Bacchae , for instance, Pentheus tries to be rational, but ends up being torn into pieces because he will not let himself go dance.

This text was last revised on November 25, 2001] Introduction Euripides' Bacchae , the last extant classical Greek tragedy, has for a long time been the focus of an intense interpretative argument, probably more so than any other Greek tragedy (especially in the wide range of very different interpretations the play). In this necessarily brief introduction, I wish to sketch out some details of the source of this disagreement and review some of the more common interpretative possibilities. In the course of this discussion, my own preferences will be clear enough, but I hope to do justice to some viewpoints with which I disagree. Some Obvious Initial Points To start with, let me review some of the more obvious and important facts of the play, things about which we are unlikely to disagree and which any interpretation is going to have to take into account. After this quick and brief review of the salient points, I'll address some of the ways people have sought to interpret them.

Table of Contents Aristotle's Poetics
The setting of the Bacchae , as in the case of most Greek tragedies, does not require a change of scene Throughout the play the skene with at least one door represents the facade of the royal palace of Thebes Even when the poet shifts the audience's attention from the palace to events in the woods, there is no shift of scene These events are described in two speeches delivered by messengers and one by an attendant rather than enacted before the audience (434-450;677-774; 1043-1152). Even when action takes place inside the palace, as in the case of Dionysus humiliation of Pentheus (610-641), there is no shift of scene, but the god himself narrates this interior action to the Chorus The Messenger speech eliminates the need for scene changes, which, due to the limited resources of the ancient theater, would have been difficult and awkward In addition, these four speeches describe actions which could not be effectively portrayed on-stage Euripides , however, like Aeschylus and Sophocles , made a virtue of the necessity of this convention of the ancient theater by writing elaborate Messenger speeches which provide a vivid word picture of the offstage action.

Brief biography of Greek playwright, euripides.
c.480 - 406 BC
Greek Playwright
Euripides was the youngest of Athens' three greatest tragic poets. He altered the content of the epics by lessening the heroic image and he became a percursor of bourgeois drama. Euripides was the most revolutionary of the Greek tragedians. The early poets still shared the traditional beliefs with the majority of their audiences, but a younger man, like Euripides, who was influenced by the free-thinking spirit of his time, no longer believed in the power of a god like Dionysus, whose festival he, as a tragic poet, was required to celebrate. Euripides solved his dilemna by presenting his plot in a way that implicitly contradicted the many answers his divine messengers provided for the difficulties of life. Of the 90 plays he wrote, 18 tragedies survive. www link :

37. Euripides, Greece, Ancient History
One of the most important Greek dramatists, euripides was born in Salamis on the day of the great battle between the Greeks and the Persians (Sept. 23).
(c.480-406BC) One of the most important Greek dramatists, Euripides was born in Salamis on the day of the great battle between the Greeks and the Persians (Sept. 23).
He got a thorough education, and his first play entered the Athenian drama festivals in 454BC, without success though. Twelve years later he won the first prize, and was to win a total of five prizes in his life.
Euripides saw himself as a misunderstood writer and was often criticised by people like Aristophanes (The Frogs). He kept to himself and did not involve himself with politics.
Influenced by the Sophists and Protagoras, Anaxagoras and Socrates, Eurupides wrote about the Greek legends and myths in an everyday language and without traditional religious and moral values.
Euripides wanted to make his characters as people really were, not what they should be. He was also interested in the individual, rather than the gods and heroes. Many of his protagonists were female characters.
He was very famous in his time, but not exceedingly popular. The writer ended his days at the court of the Macedonian king Archelaos, where he accidentally was killed by the kings' hunting dogs.

Interpretive Essay
Bibliography From the Introduction The first readers of this translation were the students in my introductory Greek Drama and Culture course in the spring of 2002 at Temple University. I inflicted an extremely awkward first draft on them, and asked them to help me write the notes and commentary by telling me what they needed to know. As complete novices, they were the best judges of what other students would need in the final edition. I am extremely grateful to them for their help. Readers will notice that some passages are placed inside brackets. These are used to represent where modern editors have reached a conclusion that a part of the received manuscript is not genuine; those lines were added subsequently, usually by actors. These additions are called interpolations.
