Language in Euripides’ Hippolytus

Michael Halleran, University of Washington, reviewed The Noose of Words: Readings of Desire, Violence, and Language in Euripides' Hippolytos, by Barbara E. Goff, at Bryn Mawr Classical Review.

"She claims at the outset that her reading of the play 'differs significantly from other available treatments, both in detail and overall allegiances' (ix). While this claim could be challenged ..., it is clear at once that Goff is not writing a 'traditional' account of the play. Influenced by a variety of anthropological and post-structuralist approaches, she offers a detailed reading of the play."

See Euripedes, Plays, Great Books of the Western World (first edition, 52 Vol., 1952) volume 5, (second edition, 60 Vol., 1990) volume 4.
