    • he says: "What Euripides does is to soften down the grotesque elements of the story until we just feel that they, are there, lurking possibilities of laughter, giving a faintly ironic but extraordinarily human quality to the pathos of the central situation" (p. 135) ...
    • "The drunkenness of Heracles is a very mild affair ... Heracles is a very attractive character. He is a big jovial man, with a great deal of good sense and kindly feeling under that rough lion-skin of his. He is that at all times; but he is something more. One of the finest things in the play is the revelation, at the call of an extreme danger, of the heroic strain in this unassuming son of the god. We are made to feel that the roistering mood of the feast was but the mask of a more permanent mood, a kind and cheerful stoicism, accepting, though fully conscious, the burden of its duty" (p. 138)...
    • "Euripides has made us accept that trans- figuration as natural, inevitable. This is great art" (p. 139).
