      " Review Of J. R. Porter, Studies In Euripides’ Orestes (Mnemosyne Suppl. , )" published on 01 Jan by Brill. Euripides would often take a myth and delve into a problematic event or action that calls the rest of the myth’s ideology into question. In Alcestis, for example, he takes a story of a wife's goodness and transforms it into an indictment of her husband, and, by extension, an indictment of the patriarchal values that the old legend promoted.

      ‘Scodel’s book is an accessible and lively account of a complex dramatic form with enduring interest for modern audiences. In addition to providing reliable background information, she draws her readers into fascinating debates about the origins, staging, and interpretation of tragedy and brings to life both familiar and lesser-known characters in her lucid analyses of individual plays.’. Gender and Sexuality, Literature and Literary Studies > Literary Criticism, Pre-Modern Studies > Classical Studies Where is the pleasure in tragedy? This question, how suffering and sorrow become the stuff of aesthetic delight, is at the center of Charles Segal's new book, which collects and expands his recent explorations of Euripides' art.

      Euripides has books on Goodreads with ratings. Euripides’s most popular book is Medea. Euripides' Hippolytos tells of an honourable youth's tragic death, contrived by his father in the false belief that his son had seduced his new wife. This edition of the play is intended for students and scholars alike. The text is based upon new collations of the medieval manuscripts (two of them hitherto uncollated) and on all known papyri.
