dc.description.abstractThis essay focuses on a particular aspect of Hippolytus' social nature in Euripides' drama, his status as an ephebe, and the relationship between Euripides' drama and the ephebia. My goal is to show how the drama engages certain Athenian social rituals as an integral part of its form and meaning. Through a close study of the play's language, we will find that the drama's text embodies and enacts these social structures as Hippolytus undergoes a passage to a manhood that he can only achieve in death. I pursue this inquiry in the light of recent work by Vidal-Naquet and Winkler on the ephebia and Greek drama, examining the social function of Euripides' drama, its evocation and imitation of specific Athenian social practices, and the way the text's language specifically negotiates these practices.
