It is argued that the expression in Hippolytos (especially that of the messenger speech) has a powerful erotic charge, that the presentation of Hippolytos resonates with suggestions of the sexuality he denies, and that this has a definite homosexual slant. This interpretation is seen to make sense of many difficult or rejected passages.
