In Euripides’ drama, Hippolytus angers Aphrodite, the goddess of love, so much by worshiping the hunting goddess Artemis that she makes his stepmother, Phaedra fall in love with him. Peter Roth presents a bilingual version of Hippolytus with a new prose translation. The extensive commentary requires no prior knowledge of Greek, providing information on factual issues and questions of interpretation. An extensive introduction deals with performance arrangements, the underlying myth, the language and metrics, and general questions of interpretation.
