    Ιππόλυτος MOBI ñ Hardback Ιππόλυτος book, Ιππόλυτος ePUBSexuality Celibacy17 April 2012 I should mention that technically this play should come under 'I' as opposed to 'H' and I almost put it under 'I' without thinking namely because Greek does not actually have an 'H' What they have are rough and smooth breathings which is a little symbol that appears at the front of a word that begins with a vowel If the word has a smooth breathing it is pronounced without an H while if it has a rough breathing it is pronounced with an H You have probably worked out that Hippolytus has a rough breathing however in the Greek Lexicons it will be found under 'Iota' which is the Greek I This play is a tragedy however it is not strictly a tragedy in the true sense of the word namely because the main character Hippolytus does not have a fatal flaw However this whole concept of a fatal flaw was something that Aristotle explores in 'Poetics' and it is something that Shakespeare used in a lot of his tragedies th

    Ιππόλυτος MOBI ñ Hardback Ιππόλυτος book, Ιππόλυτος ePUBAbout the pains and woes of rejecting love Some great tragedies have been written with love as the main antagonist unreuited love impossible and forbidden love love triangles Hippolytos is in a sense an anomaly among them While there is unreuited love in the plot the issue that sets the tragedy in motion is a man's rejection of love itself as a concept The titular character only serves Artemis a goddess of purity a virgin; he refuses to serve Aphrodite denying love altogether as a source of evil Not only that his contempt turns against womanhood as a whole as they are the ones that can make men fall for it Euripides presents the problem almost as a paradox while love is the downfall of man it is precisely the rejecting of it what causes the ultimate fall of Hippolytos His purity is sick just as Fedra's desire is sick perhaps in a subtle way uite cleverly Euripides turns the play into an eitheror problem which unavoidably leads to tragedy I like my
