read
Euripides’
Hippolytus
and
the
two
critical
analyses,
written
by
Dr.
Nickel,
 on
this
handout.

One
of
the
two
would
receive
a
grade
of
D/D+
(approx.
56‐58%),
the
 other
a
grade
of
B+/A‐
(78‐82%).


 Your
task
for
seminar
is
to
identify
which
grade
belongs
to
which
passage,
to
explain
why
 the
passages
deserve
these
grades,
and
to
offer
constructive
criticism
for
the
improvement
 of
each
passage.

This
will
involve
identifying
the
weaknesses
and
strengths
of
both
 passages.


In
order
to
do
this,
you
will
need
to
have
read
all
of
the
Hippolytus.

to
provide
the
audience
 with
the
background
to
the
story
they
are
about
to
see.

It
explains
why
Aphrodite
has
 resolved
to
take
vengeance
on
Hippolytus
and
how
she
plans
to
bring
about
his
death.
 Euripides,
however,
does
much
more
than
simply
reveal
background
details
that
help
the
 audience
understand
the
events
they
are
about
to
see.

He
also
