The Death of Hippolytus: Reception and Representation in Seneca, Racine, and Kane

Title:
The Death of Hippolytus: Reception and Representation in Seneca, Racine, and Kane
Authors:
Trinacty, Christopher
Abstract:
When playwrights describe the death of Hippolytus, their versions are emblematic of the literary, political, and philosophical issues that each play dramatizes. This paper examines the versions by Seneca, Racine, and Sarah Kane to indicate how these authors utilize this scene in order to conceptualize the purpose of violence in their respective tragedies.
