  Euripides - MSN Encarta
Euripides was austere and considered himself misunderstood by his contemporaries—a conclusion not without foundation, for he was constantly the object of attack by Athenian writers of comedy.
Euripides’ plays were criticized for their unconventionality, for their natural dialogue (his heroes and princes spoke the language of everyday life), and for their independence from traditional religious and moral values.
Euripides shared in the intellectual skepticism of the day, and his plays challenged the religious and moral dogmas of the past, which had not yet fallen into general discredit.
