EURIPIDES AND HIS TRAGEDIES This document was originally published in The Drama: Its History, Literature and Influence on Civilization, vol. 1 . ed. Alfred Bates. London: Historical Publishing Company, 1906. pp. 158-166. Purchase Books by Euripides "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

Home Ancient Theatre Medieval Theatre 16th Century ... Email Us EURIPIDES (c. 485-406 B.C.) T HERE 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.

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.

484?-406 BC In 405 BC It was true. Euripides had died in 406. Along with Aeschylus and Sophocles, Euripides was one of the three great tragic poets of ancient Greece. Of his life very little is known. He was born about 484. Later in life he married a woman named Melito, and they had three sons. In 408 he left Athens for Macedonia, probably because of disgust with the seemingly endless Peloponnesian War with Sparta. Euripides is believed to have written 92 dramas, but only 19 of them are now known. They show him to have been a tragedian of incomparable merit. He saw the world as a place where chance, order, and reason were constantly thwarted by unreason and passion. He was aware of so much meaningless suffering and tragedy that his view of life verged on despair. He was especially troubled by the ferocity and folly of the Peloponnesian War, which broke out in 431 BC and outlasted his life. As with those of the other tragedians, the plays of Euripides deal with legendary and mythological events of a time far removed from 5th-century Athens. But the points he made were applicable to the time in which he wrote, especially to the cruelties of the war.

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 :

Euripides is one of the three well known Greek tragedians but his work differs quite markedly from his contemporary counterparts. Rather than presenting elaborately constructed plots, he focused on the psychological dilemmas of ordinary citizens.

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 Mnesarch,us 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 herb-seller—a quaint instance of the tone which public satire could then adopt with plausible effec...
