This chapter is essentially a survey of Euripidean reception in Germany and Britain between 1800 and 1880, and an examination of the prevailing damnatio of Euripides. The survey is intended to record the principal studies made of the tragedian during this period and to illustrate the views expressed by his chief detractors and disciples, and, thereby, to serve as a prelude to Robert Browning's radical defence of Euripides, which is discussed in Chapter 6. Among the views examined are those of A. W. Schlegel, Matthew Arnold, Nietzsche, Wilamowitz, J. P. Mahaffy, and Oscar Wilde.

Keywords:   damnatio, Euripides, Browning, Schlegel, Nietzsche, Wilamowitz, Oscar Wilde
