Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses some problems of text and interpretation in the Hippolytus. Phaedra's long speech is one of the most important elements in Euripides' most intricate play. We may confidently assume that with his surpassing interest in women and in rhetoric the dramatist will have lavished more than usual pains upon it. Interpretation of it has suffered in the past from false preconceptions and lexicological imprecision. The author is indebted to W. S. Barrett's commentary, whose detailed approach at least draws attention to numerous difficulties that have been hitherto neglected; but the conclusions reached differ radically from his.

Keywords: Euripides; Hippolytus; Phaedra; W. S. Barrett's commentary
