Euripides and the Tragic Tradition
Ann Norris Michelini

Wisconsin Studies in Classics

"This perceptive and fluently written study is a valuable contribution to our understanding of the complex and anomalous work of Euripides."
Choice

"Euripides and the Tragic Tradition asks all the right questions. It forces us to confront the many contradictions in Euripides' work, demonstrates the differences between the literary assumptions of Sophocles and Euripides, and challenges us to respond to Euripidean drama with sophistication and sensitivity."–Francis M. Dunn, Scholia

"The work is characterized throughout by lively intelligence, impeccable scholarship and long familiarity with Greek tragedy. Michelini has read widely (the bibliography is 35 pages long) and independently in the secondary sources (early 20th c. Continental literature is surprisingly well-represented) but at the same time is willing to take chances and advance bold hypotheses."–Richard Hamilton, Classical World

"Indeed, [Euripides and the Tragic Tradition] is perhaps the best general book on [Euripides] in English since Conacher."–R. B. Rutherford, Greece and Rome

Ann Michelini is the author of numerous articles and two books on Greek tradedy. Her current research focuses on the literary aspects of Platonic dialogues, including an edited volume, Plato as Literary Author.
