In this course we will read the 18 surviving plays of Euripides, c. 480-405 BCE. (Greek tragedies are short, though this is not as much as it looks).

These are a wild mixture of pure tragedies, plays of adventure with happy endings, and miniature soap operas. We will concentrate on how Euripides can be relevant for us--what we can enjoy, what we can learn from — but also on what in these plays is strange and hard to understand no matter how much we study it.
