Vasileios Dimoglidis

Konstantinos Kalogeropoulos

The aim of this paper is to present the evolutionary course of Phaedra’s erotic passion for her stepson, Hippolytus, in Euripides’ homonymous tragedy. Simultaneously, another point that will be discussed is the formation of passion by other dramatic persons, particularly the Nurse and Hippolytus. This paper was presented, in an early version, at the Second Annual Classics Conference held by the Association of Graduate Students and PhD Candidates of Philology Department at the University of Ioannina on Friday, 31 May 2013. I would like to thank the organizing committee of the Conference and the chairman Dr. Konstantinos Stefou for giving me the opportunity to present my paper. I am profoundly indebted to Dr. Efi Papadodima for her supervision and continuing assistance in this paper, and to Helen Gasti, Assistant Professor of Ancient Greek and Latin Literature at the University of Ioannina, for some meaningful suggestions.
