In the plays of Euripides (485-408 BCE) the heroes of Homer and the classic Greek legends about the Trojan War become ordinary men, with very human traits that give complexity and depth to the dramas. In this respect, Euripides has been regarded as the first modern dramatist. When one compares his characters with those of Aeschylus, it is clear that a revolutionary move has been made towards portraying the human situation. Menelaus and Agamemnon are no longer supermen but ordinary men with human failings. The women in the Trojan war are no longer background figures but come into the foreground with their vivid description of the sufferings of civilians in warfare. Euripides shows great sympathy for the victims of society, particularly women and children, but also for immigrants, captives, and slaves. It has been said, perhaps by another great Greek dramatist, Sophocles, that whereas Sophocles showed people as they should be, Euripides showed people as they are. In Iphigenia in Auli s, Iphigenea is sacrificed at the orders of Menelaus and Agamemnon, who are portrayed as indecisive political braggarts. Iphigenea, who has only a small part in the play, turns out to be the heroine. In

Aristotle wrote that Greek tragedy developed out of the choric dithyramb. Thespis was the first actor known to step away from the chorus and make a dramatic scene, not just tell a story but actually act it out in present time. Now the protagonist could answer the chorus in a dialog. More than one point of view could be expressed at the same time allowing the portrayal of conflict in which the Greeks excelled. In 534 BC Peisistratus, who had enacted more than one real-life drama of his own to win tyranny over Athens, sponsored the first festival with a dramatic performance by Thespis and his troupe. Solon, who had reason to question the antics of Peisistratus, once asked Thespis if he were not ashamed to be telling so many lies in public; but the actor explained there was no harm in doing so in a play. In fact I believe we shall find that many of society's conflicts and ethical issues can be portrayed on the stage to enhance people's understanding without the negative consequences.
Aeschylus was born about 525 BC. At the beginning of the fifth century BC Athens' Dionysian festival became more organized, and Aeschylus began presenting tragedies in 499 BC along with Thespis, Pratinas, Choerilus, and Phrynichus, who was fined for reminding Athenians of their grief for the defeat by the Persians in

Euripides (480 or 484-406 BC)
Biographical note
Euripides was one of the three great tragedians of classical Athens, along with Aeschylus and Sophocles; he was the youngest of the three. According to ancient sources, he wrote over 90 plays, 19 of which are extant, although it is widely believed by scholars that the play Rhesus was actually written by someone else. Fragments of most of the other plays survive, some of them substantial. The number of Euripides' plays that have survived is more than double that of Aeschylus and Sophocles, partly due to the chance preservation of a manuscript that was likely part of a complete collection of his works.

    Plutarch's Pyrrhus and Euripides' Phoenician Women : Biography and Tragedy on Pleonectic Parenting
    David Braund (University of Exeter)
    The principal concern of this paper is to explore the relevance of Euripides' Phoenician Women to Plutarch's Life of Pyrrhus. It will be argued that the relevance of the play is much more substantial than usually acknowledged: that its relevance goes beyond the two direct quotations from the play which occur in the Life . It is worth stressing at the outset that of the five quotations from the play in Plutarch's extant Lives as a whole, two are in the Pyrrhus : that may plausibly be claimed as a concentration ( Pyrrh. 9 and 14; cf. Demetr Sull Comp. Nic.-Crass . 4). In what follows, I shall attempt to explain how and why the play matters to a reading of the Life . The essence of my claim is that the reader's knowledge of Euripides' play is made to provide what may be termed "added value" to Plutarch's Life , with the further validation of Euripidean authority. The general relevance to Plutarch's Lives of Athenian tragedy (and indeed of Homeric epic) has long been recognised. And Judith Mossman has explored tragic and epic elements in the

    The setting of the Medea , 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 Jason's and Medea's house in Corinth. Even when the poet directs the audience's attention to events elsewhere, as in the case of the deaths of Creon and his daughter in the royal palace, there is no shift of scene. These events are described in a speech delivered by a messenger (1136-1230) rather than enacted before the audience. 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. Euripides, 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. The numbers refer to lines in the Medea.

    To Guide Entry
    Our view of Greek literature is rather like a view of a great mountain range in which few peaks stand out in perfect clarity against a blue sky while the rest of the range is patchily, tantalizingly hidden by banks and drifts of clouds. It is with deepest gratitude and respect that I mention those men and women who have spent their lives in pursuit of discovering and preserving the treasures of Ancient Greece. It has to have been an act of love and dedication seldom thought about by many and thankfully able to be carried on by those who have taken up the quest of continuing discovery and study. Indeed, the treasures of Ancient Greece, plead to each generation of scholar, to be sought after, saved and relished. Classicists, for hundreds of years, wrestled the jewels of Ancient Greece’s artists, writers, poets, philosophers and thinkers from the dry sifting sands of Egypt. It is because of these scholars that this unit can be presented to a classroom of students in Connecticut in the year 1984 A.D. It is also because of this that much of the information about this ancient time is filled with conjecture and legend. However, we have a few peaks that stand out clearly, mainly, because others before us have climbed through the mist and cloud to beckon us to stand with them upon the mountain peak and feel the promise of knowledge, inhale the air of challenge and realize the mystery that is Ancient Greece.

    The Bacchae:
    Slowly but surely withal moveth the might of the gods. Gods should not resemble men in their anger! LIfe is short; this being so, who would pursue great things and not bear with what is at hand? These are the ways of madmen and men of evil counsel, at least in my judgment. Happy the man who from the sea escapes the storm and finds harbor. Mankind . . . possesses two supreme blessings. First of these is the goddess Demeter, or Earth whichever name you choose to call her by. It was she who gave to man his nourishment of grain. But after her there came the son of Semele, who matched her present by inventing liquid wine as his gift to man. For filled with that good gift, suffering mankind forgets its grief; from it comes sleep; with it oblivion of the troubles of the day. There is no other medicine for misery. The brash unbridled tongue, the lawless folly of fools, will end in pain. But the life of wise content is blest with quietness, escapes the storm and keeps its house secure. He who best enjoys each passing day is truly blest.

    Notes on Euripides' Hippolytus
    1. What does Aristotle say?
    Aristotle himself never refers to this play, or to the Hippolytus or Phaedra in general. (He alludes to line 989 at Rhetoric 1395b28-30, and at Rhetoric 1416a32 mentions someone quoting line 612 - ‘my tongue swore: my heart is not bound by oath’ - against Euripides.)
    2. What do Aristotle's theories imply?
    1. The most obvious candidate for a reversal in this play is the Nurse's approach to Hippolytus: her overriding aim throughout is to save Phaedra's life, but the outcome is to make her death even more imperative and to bring about Hippolytus' death as well. (Note how, as in Oedipus , the pivotal role of the reversal is reflected in a change of agenda. Up to this point Phaedra has wanted to conceal her secret by her own death; now she also needs to bring about Hippolytus' death.) 2. If this identification of the reversal is right, then in Hippolytus the reversal arguably does not coincide with the change of fortune (or with the beginning of the change of fortune); it might be better to say the reversal sets in motion a further chain of events which leads to the change of fortune. So we should not assume that reversal and change of fortune necessarily coincide (as is arguably the case in
