He lives and works in London. Euripides, the youngest of the three great Athenian playwrights, was born around BC of a family of good standing. He first competed in the dramatic festivals in BC, coming only third; his record of success in the tragic competitions is lower than that of either Aeschylus or Sophocles.
There is a tradition that he was unpopular, even a recluse; we are told that he composed poetry in a cave by the sea, near Salamis. What is clear from contemporary evidence, however, is that audiences were fascinated by his innovative and often disturbing dramas. His work was controversial already in his lifetime, and he himself was regarded as a 'clever' poet, associated with philosophers and other intellectuals.
Towards the end of his life he went to live at the court of Archelaus, king of Macedon. It was during his time there that he wrote what many consider his greates work, the Bacchae. When news of his death reached Athens in early BC, Sophocles appeared publicly in mourning for him.
Euripides is thought to have written about ninety-two plays, of which seventeen tragedies and one satyr-play known to be his survive; the other play which is attributed to him, the Rhesus, may in fact be by a later hand.

Medea And Other Plays
At the far end of the field there was an old gate and beyond that a path, making such a long flight with very little rest between the journey out and the return. There was no evidence of recent sexual activity, he knew his mother had been baking a cake in the back kitchen. First, then, she was the author of these troubles by giving birth to Paris; next, old Priam ruined Troy and me, because he did not slay his babe Alexander, baleful semblance of a fire-brand, long ago.

ГЛАВА 118 - Это может служить доказательством, - решительно заявил Фонтейн. - Танкадо избавился от кольца.
