Sample Text:
Justice, in the context of Euripides’ greek tragedy, is explained by actions or choices made to seek equality or righteousness using fair reasoning, whereas revenge is said to have occurred when this line of fair reasoning is crossed. In proportion to the play, Euripides spends more time discussing acts the Chorus, and hence the audience, may perceive to be just.
