Antigone’s Judicial Hierarchy - Antigone’s Judicial Hierarchy In Antigone, one of the most renowned Greek tragedies, Sophocles constructs a conflict that questions the very definition of justice. Considering a play based almost entirely on the acts of a single individual in clear defiance of a king’s decree, questions of right and wrong necessarily persist. It is difficult, however, for one to understand justice in deciphering the opinions of the two conflicting parties, Creon and Antigone, as these two clearly have opposing biased perspectives....   [tags: Sophocles Antigone Papers]

Penelope and Alcestis as Ideal Greek Females - Penelope of the Odyssey and Alcestis of Alcestis as Ideal Greek Females    Although there is some disagreement concerning the Greek’s definition of the ideal female, there is little disagreement that two women represented this Greek ideal. The character of Penelope of Homer's Odyssey 1 and Alcestis of Euripides' Alcestis 2, came to represent the same ideal of female excellence. The Greeks referred to this ideal female as a sophron woman. The qualities possessed by a sophron woman are tangible; she is a good housekeeper, a nurturer of her husband, a child-bearer....   [tags: Homer's Odyssey Euripides' Alcestis]

The Role of Alfieri in A View from the Bridge by Arthur Miller - The Role of Alfieri in A View from the Bridge by Arthur Miller In Miller’s ‘A View From The Bridge’, Alfieri holds a vital role. He opens and closes the play, distinguishes between the two acts and in general keeps the audience up to date with the play’s swift pace, providing us with an inside understanding of the events which take place. What is interesting about Alfieri’s role is that he acts not only as a chorus for the play, but that he also partakes in the proceedings as a character within the performance....   [tags: Papers] 1848 words

Greek And Roman Art - The Greek Theater: "The arts of the western world have been largely dominated by the artistic standards established by the Greeks of the classical period" (Spreloosel 86). It is from the Greek word theatron, meaning a place for sitting, that we get our word theater. According to James Butler, "The Greeks were the first people to erect special structures to bring audiences and theatrical performers together" (27). "The theaters were normally located near a populated area at the bottom of or cut out of a carefully selected, sloping hillside overlooking a seascape, a plain, or a city" (Butler 30)....   [tags: essays research papers] 1867 words

Comparing Ethics of Responsibility in The Visit and The Oresteia - The Visit and The Oresteia: Ethics of Responsibility       When Friedrich Durrenmatt wrote the play The Visit, he was doing so in response to what he saw as appalling neutrality on the part of the Swiss during World War II, neutrality that we now know was something more insidious.  This powerful play expresses what happens in a community where responsibility is abdicated and scapegoating is employed, what happens when mercy falls to vengeance in the name of justice.  It is a play designed to shock society into recognizing its own flaws and choosing a different course of action, a different way to be.  Today I would like to briefly describe how this play and its connections help my students comprehend both the wider world (in place and time) and their own world, how literature can speak powerfully to correct social ills.  Finally, I wish show how this play helps students recognize how communities are constructed and how each individual has a responsibility to serve the communities of which they are a part....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Conventions Of Drama - Through the centuries, the conventions of drama have been altered in many different ways. These conventions are the setting, plot, characters and staging. The main factor which has been a dominant force during the changes of conventions has been the society. The society present during the time in which a play was written had a direct influence on the plot and characters. This is because drama is defined as a representation of life. Four plays which have been selected from Greek, Elizabethan, Restoration and Modern times can be analysed to show and represent the changes of drama....   [tags: essays research papers] 1930 words

Christian Tragedy and Samson Agonistes - ... Despite unifying the chorus under one voice, Milton seems to suggest that a collective will never discover real truths. If the Chorus represents the problems of relying on a group for guidance, the character of Manoa proves that a single advisor is just as fallible. Manoa is Samson’s earthly father, and Milton emphasizes this by Manoa’s earthly goal: physical liberty for his son, through a ransom deal with his captors. Manoa, like the chorus, sees only the old, heroic Samson. He claims, “It shall be my delight to tend his eyes,/ And view him sitting in the house, enobl'd
/ With all those high exploits by him atchiev'd” (1490-1493)....   [tags: Literature]

William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet - William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare presents Romeo & Juliet's early relationship as a love-hate affair. By this I mean that although they love each other immensely, they are surrounded by the hate of their two families. You see the hate of the two families from the outset, as you will see in this essay. In my essay I will be looking at what Shakespeare has done to make us see Romeo & Juliet in a certain way. I am also going to look at the reason for the chorus; The set up of the scenes; Shakespeare's use of comparisons; his use of language; why Shakespeare uses Rosalind and Paris in the early part of the play; Romeo & Juliet's first meeting and that famous 'Orchard Scene.'

Band Music Librarian - Although many music librarians come to the position via performing, my career included several additional layers of being at the right place at the right time.

Does the Outcome of the Antigone Suggest That Creon Was Wrong from the Start? - Sophocles' Antigone is, at its simplest, a tragedy of conflict and misunderstandings. In the play, the laws of the gods are set up against the laws of man, and the two appear irreconcilable as the values are upheld by equally opposing characters, Creon and Antigone respectively. Indeed, Wilkins and Macleod decide that in Antigone `not only is there conflict, there is also a refusal even to recognise the other's point of view' (23). Thus Chorus significantly warn against the pursuit of extremes and sing about the need for men to reconcile human and divine law: When he weaves in the laws of the land, and the justice of the gods that binds his oaths together he and his city rise high (409-12) In this essay I intend to show how Creon systematically chose to exalt state law over divine law and how the end of the play - as Creon loses his son, wife, niece and status - tragically demonstrates the severity of his mistake....   [tags: European Literature] 2262 words

The Characterisation of Clytaemnestra in the "Oresteia" - In this essay I intend to discuss how Aeschylus presents Clytaemnestra in the Oresteia and how he marks the extent to which traits of Clytaemnestra's character remain defiantly unchanged as she manipulates events and characters around her. Clytaemnestra is the only character who appears in all three plays in the trilogy, but despite her immense stage presence she remains a troublesome character to interpret due to the highly ambiguous nature of her words. I intend to show that the key to unlocking Clytaemnestra's manly heart lies in the fact that she hated Agamemnon, not simply because he had killed her child, nor because she loved Aegisthus, but out of a jealousy that was not a jealously of Cassandra, but of Agamemnon himself and his status as a man....   [tags: European Literature] 2290 words

The Theme of Alcestis - The Theme of Alcestis       Alcestis by Euripides is distinct from other Greek Tragedy, due to its fairy tale origins. It was the fourth play in a set and would therefore have taken the place of a satyr-play. Satyr-plays were usually a light, comic play used as a form of relief from the previous heavy tragedies. The play has its comic elements, Heracles and Death playing the main comic figures but is there a more serious meaning hidden within the comedy. Philip Vellacott in his introduction to a collection of Euripides' plays, states that the main theme of the play is the "unequal relationship of man to woman." He believes this theme to be a reading of the play that would not be accessible to spectators who watched the play purely for enjoyment, but would be found by those capable of serious reflection....   [tags: Alcestis]

There are few other plays written by Shakespeare that include a chorus, however in no other play does the chorus have such an important role. The principal purpose of the chorus is that of story telling. The chorus acts as a guide for the audience, narrating parts that wouldn't fit into the action of the play. For example in the Act II Chorus, we are told about treason: 'The sum is paid, the traitors are agreed, the king is now set from London, and the scene is now transported, gentles, to Southampton.'

The old men of the chorus in their opening chant, "Hymn to Zeus," declare that suffering must be experienced before man can be released from this ceaseless irredeemable bloodshed and thus be, "free from all the pain." (1) They declare that it is a law laid down by Zeus "that we must suffer, suffer into truth./ We cannot sleep, and drop by drop at the heart/ the pain of pain remembered comes again,/ and we resist, but ripeness comes as well." (177-184) Eventually, as the more and more of the agony of remembered pain, the blood, drips away from the heart, there will be "ripeness."
