Plutarch’s Pyrrhus and Euripides’ Phoenician Women: Biography and Tragedy on Pleonectic Parenting
“The principal concern of this paper is to explore the relevance of Euripides’ Phoenician Women to Plutarch’s Life of Pyrrhus. It will be argued that the relevance of the play is much more substantial than usually acknowledged: that its relevance goes beyond the two direct quotations from the play which occur in the Life.”

Why Did Plutarch Write About Nicias?
“It must have been while reading Thucydides that Plutarch first encountered Nicias, the superstitious Athenian general who arguably lost the Sicilian Expedition through his reaction to a lunar eclipse. Because Plutarch hated superstition, he had a low opinion of Nicias which permeates the latter’s biography. Since Plutarch wrote the Parallel Lives to provide good examples, his selection of Nicias for a subject is puzzling. This paper offers one explanation.”
