The play was first produced for the City Dionysia of Athens in BC and won first prize as part of a trilogy. The earlier play, and the one that has survived are both titled Hippolytusbut in order to distinguish the two they have traditionally been given the names, Hippolytus Kalyptomenos “Hippolytus veiled” furipid Hippolytus Stephanophoros “Hippolytus the wreath bearer”.
In this version Phaedra fights against her own sexual desires, which have been incited by Aphrodite. The play is set in Troezena coastal town hipolot the north-eastern Peloponnese. Theseusthe king euripld Athensis serving a year’s voluntary exile after having murdered a local king and his sons. His illegitimate son is Hippolytus, whose birth is the result of Theseus’s rape of the Amazon Hippolyta.
Hippolytus has been trained since childhood by the king of Troezen, Pittheus.
At the opening of the play AphroditeGoddess of love, explains that Hippolytus has sworn chastity and refuses to revere her. Instead, he honours the Goddess of the hunt, Artemis. This has led her to initiate a plan of vengeance on Hippolytus. When Hippolytus went to Athens two years previously Aphrodite inspired EeuripidHippolytus’ stepmother, to fall in love with him.
Hippolytus appears with his followers and shows reverence to a statue of Artemis, a chaste goddess. A servant warns him about slighting Aphrodite, but Hippolytus refuses hippolit listen. The chorusconsisting of young married women of Troezen, enters and describes how Theseus’s wife, Phaedra has not eaten or slept in three days.

However, in an aside she reveals different plans. The nurse, after making Hippolytus swear not to tell anyone, informs Hippolytus of Phaedra’s desire and suggests that Hippolytus consider yielding to her. He reacts with a furious tirade and threatens to tell his father, Theseus, everything as soon as he arrives. Phaedra realizes disaster has fallen. After making the chorus swear secrecy, she goes inside and hangs herself. Theseus returns and discovers his wife’s dead body.
Because the chorus is sworn to secrecy, they cannot tell Theseus why she killed herself. Theseus discovers a letter on Phaedra’s body, which falsely asserts that she was raped by Hippolytus.
Enraged, Theseus curses his son either to death or at least euripidd. To execute the curse, Theseus calls upon his father, the god Poseidonwho has promised to grant his son three wishes. Hippolytus enters and protests his innocence but cannot tell the truth because of the binding oath that he swore.
Taking his wife’s letter as proof, Theseus exiles his son.
A messenger enters and describes a gruesome scene to Theseus; as Hippolytus got in his chariot to leave the kingdom, a bull roared out of the sea, frightening his horses, which dashed his chariot among the rocks, dragging Hippolytus behind. Hippolytus seems to be dying. The messenger protests Hippolytus’ bipolit, but Theseus refuses to believe him.
Theseus is glad that Hippolytus is suffering and about to die. But then the goddess, Eueipid, appears and rages at Theseus for killing his own son; she brutally tells him the truth: Theseus is painfully devastated by this revelation. Hippolytus is hhipolit in physically battered and barely clinging to life. In the last moments of the play, Hippolytus forgives his father, kind words are exchanged between father and son, and then Hippolytus dies.
In this play, all characters, the humans and gods, have imperfections and can be jealous and brutal in vengeance. They all have blindnesses that keep them from seeing and understanding others with eugipid and these blindnesses result in tragedy. The play presents two goddesses who represent two aspects of the human spirit in conflict: One aspect is love, represented by Aphrodite and personified by Phaedra. The second aspect is what the play refers to as sophrosynewhich is represented by Artemis and personified by Hippolytus.
Sophrosyne can be defined in part as being chaste, pure, clear-headed and untainted by sexual desire. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article needs additional citations for verification.
