Chapter Summary

This chapter presents some critical notes on Euripides's Hippolytus. It also includes the index of some passages. 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. In any case, Hippolytus is addressing the Nurse in the first instance, and he can hardly be expecting much embarrassment from such an audacious person. There cannot, surely, be much doubt about what Hippolytus is proposing to observe, if (as the whole plot demands) his future silence is to be left uncertain.
