Author

EURIPIDES  was one of the three great tragedians of classical Athens, the other two being Aeschylus and Sophocles. 

He is identified with theatrical innovations that have profoundly influenced drama down to modern times; he focused on the inner lives and motives of his characters in a way previously unknown.  He was also unique among the writers of ancient Athens for the sympathy he demonstrated towards all victims of society, including women, and his conservative male audiences were frequently shocked by the 'heresies' he put into the mouths of characters.
