The Myth of Phaedra: 3 Perspectives
Dig deep into Euripides
Led by experienced teachers Marilyn Scott (Classics) and Gail Hubbard (French), this study group will see how one myth may be interpreted multiple ways. We will read and discuss Euripides’ tragedy Hippolytus (James Morwood’s Oxford Classics Translation), then Racine’s drama Phaedre (Ted Hughes translation). Finally, we’ll watch the 1962 Phaedra, a modern re-telling starring Melina Mercouri and Tony Perkins. Please bring the specified translations to class. The Study Group for those 50 and over is held Fridays April 24 through May 22.
