Book Description Liverpool University Press, United Kingdom, 1995. Paperback. Condition: New. New ed.. Language: Greek . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Euripides works with a common story pattern ! a young man (Hippolytus) becomes the object of a married woman s (Phaedra s) desire, rebuffs her sexual overtures, and is then falsely accused to the woman s husband (Theseus, Hippolytus father) of rape. To this familiar tale Euripides adds the story of divine vengeance, Aphrodite has brought about this passion in Phaedras for neglecting him of sex and marriage. In working through these plots the play explores the themes of passion and moderation, speech and silence, honour and shame, and examines the relationship between gods and mortals. This play holds a particular place in Euripidean studies, not only because of its acknowledged excellence and influence, but also because it allows the unique opportunity to observe the playwright s rewriting of his earlier play on the same mythological topic, remarkably replacing the brazen Phaedra of earlier legend and previous treatments with a virtuous woman. Greek Text with facing translation, commentary and notes. Seller Inventory # TNP9780856682414
