ABSTRACT
In this article, the author analyzes the translation of the tragedy "Jocasta" by George Gascoigne and Francis Kinwelmershe. According to the author, Gascoigne and Kinwelmershe based their translation on Ludovico Dolce's Renaissance Senecan-imitation of Euripides' tragedy as a study in obedience and resistance. She also examines the relationship between the brothers Polynices and Eteocles' actions in "Jocasta" and "Hell" that is made explicit in the argument at the beginning of the play.
