Occupation: Poet, playwright

Bio: Euripides was one of the three great tragedians of classical Athens, the other two being Aeschylus and Sophocles. Some ancient scholars attributed ninety-five plays to him but according to the Suda it was ninety-two at most. Of these, eighteen or nineteen have survived complete and there are also fragments, some substantial, of most of the other plays.

Quote of the day

The end comes when we no longer talk with ourselves. It is the end of genuine thinking and the beginning of the final loneliness.
