    More Information:

    Euripides (c 480-406 B.C.) one of the three great Attic tragedians. "Euripides chose for his tragedies, as a rule, situations of violent stress, showing men and women in the grip of passion or torn by conflicting impulses; showing also the play of natural affection. He approached nearer to ordinary life than did Aeschylus and Sophocles. He did not accept unquestioningly the traditional religion and morality, but displayed vigorous independent thought, frequently scandalizing public opinion." [OCCL]
