Gender and the City in Euripides' Political Plays

Daniel Mendelsohn

  • The only book-length study devoted to these works since Guenther Zuntz's The Political Plays of Euripides (1955)
  • Re-evaluates the plays in the light of contemporary critical discussion of Athenian concepts of gender and the organization of, and tensions within, the city-state
  • Shows that the two neglected political plays are structurally coherent and wholly consonant with the 'ironic' Euripidean tone familiar from other, more popular works
