About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1953, this book presents a concise study regarding the nature of Euripidean tragedy. The main part of the text discusses the conflict between Euripides' presentation of the gods and his own religious beliefs, putting forward the view that the plots of his plays are 'fantasies' without an intended symbolic content. The final two chapters provide accounts of The Suppliants and realism within Greek tragedy, respectively. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Ancient Greek drama, Classical literature and literary criticism.
