How difficult is Euripides Medea

Post by Kaius Cunctator »

Hello guys. I am recently reading Euripides Medea. I feel that the vocabularies are endless......there is at least one or two every line. Any more experienced readers could tell me how difficult is the text compared to other texts? After I finish it, which texts would be more comfortable to read and which ones will still be challenging?

None of the Greek dramatists is easy, but Euripides is generally somewhat easier than Sophocles and Aeschylus. What else have you read?
