Anxiety Veiled: Euripides and the Traffic in Women


Margaret Bundy Scott Professor of Comparative Literature Nancy Rabinowitz asks what should we make of the prominence of female characters in the plays of Euripides, in her 1993 book Anxiety Veiled: Euripides and the Traffic in Women. Not, Rabinowitz concludes, that he was either a misogynist or a feminist before his time. Tracking the relationship between male anxiety and female desire in his drama, she demonstrates in this rich and incisive book that Euripides' plays support a structure of male dominance while simultaneously inscribing female strength.
