PHAEDRA * (mythology) The wife of Theseus, who falls in love with but is spurned by her stepson Hippolytus, then commits suicide, but is the cause of his later death (details vary between versions). * 1981, Normand Berlin, _The Secret Cause: A Discussion of Tragedy_, page 46, We notice that Racine's PHAEDRA, like Euripides', displays high moral dignity because she considers her passion for Hippolytus to be abominable. * 1993, Albert S. Gérard, _The PHAEDRA Syndrome: Of Shame and Guilt in Drama_, page 20, Why did Seneca decide to postpone his own PHAEDRA’s suicide until after Hippolytus' death? The question is by no means as futile as it may sound. * 2003, Christiane Sourvinou-Inwood, _Tragedy and Athenian Religion_, page 331, I may add that the notion that Aphrodite is especially cruel because she destroyed PHAEDRA, who was an innocent victim, since she had no choice, is not a perception that would have been shared by the ancient audience. Not only is it at the very least arguable—in fact likely—that in ancient eyes PHAEDRA did have a choice,166 but also the very notions "innocent victim since she had no choice" and "cruel because destroying an innocent victim" are unstable cultural concepts. * (rare) A female given name. * (astronomy) The asteroid 174 Phaedra.
