    Download Doc ☆ Electra and Other Plays ✓ Paperback Electra and Other PlaysContinuing the tradition of greek tragedy reviewing Sophocles is by all definitions one of the greatest playwrites of all time He focuses on the psyche and often on characters who fall by doing the right thing who define themselves by honorable traits until it kills them These plays may be less known on the whole but still pack a punch I did notice that these plays had little affect on me in comparison to certain others by Sophocles but I believe this may partially be a result of translation; these translations feel less biting less sharp direct meaning than emotionReviewed Plays from this C

    Download Doc ☆ Electra and Other Plays ✓ Paperback Electra and Other PlaysThere is something about Greek literature Sophocles and Homer most especially that buries itself in the mind so that it remains unforgettable The moaning groaning wailing and suffering becomes “your own heart’s speech” It’s than a little eerie to identify so well with ancient mythological figures but their grief and agony articulate the distant voices of the collective unconscious Perhaps I’m easy to please but I found all the plays in this edition extraordinarily compelling My favorites are the Ajax and Philoctetes about two great warriors fallen low so exuisitely low that their contemplations of suicide become existential commentaries on the significance of life Like the ancient Greek audiences most readers who choose this book already know the basic plots of each play but there are surprising turns in the language and in the nuanced depiction of the characters In general I was surprised how much hate is directed at Odysseus although I

    Download Doc ☆ Electra and Other Plays ✓ Paperback Electra and Other PlaysI've only read one Sophocles' tragedy before Antigone but that was top rate so my expectations were high Sophocles didn't disappoint these were very entertaining and interesting plays that still have relevance 2500 years after they were writtenWomen of Trachis told the story of Heracles' suicide by funeral pyre I was pretty unfamiliar with the mythos around Heracles so the twists and turns of the story managed to surprise me Not badAjax was the best of these four plays Ajax was a hero of the Trojan war who got royally pissed when Achilles' weapons were handed to Odysseus instead of him So pissed in fact that he decides to torture kill all the leaders of the expedition Sounds reasonable to me Athene casts a confusion over him so Ajax ends up killing only pack animals When Ajax realizes his error he gets ashamed of his actions not the torture killing
