Ancient Greek Theater - ... It is interesting to note that dithyrambs were alternatively called “goat-song,” and the word tragedy is derived from the Greek tragos, meaning “goat,” and odi, meaning “song” (Nardo 14). In his work Poetics, the Greek philosopher Aristotle notes, “[Tragedy] certainly began in improvisations… originating with the authors of the dithyramb… And its advance after that was little by little, improving on whatever they had before them at each stage” (Nardo 14). Over the years, the dithyramb grew in elaborateness, eventually reenacting myths from older works of epic poetry, such as Homer’s Odyssey or Iliad (Nardo 14)....   [tags: Sophocles, Golden Age, Oedipus] 1223 words

The Golden Thread - The words, good and evil, and right and wrong, have been interpreted with ambiguity over the course of generations by humanity, and the finer details of their ethics are still obscured to even the most intelligent of minds, leaving us to often stay with the few basic tenants that seek to preserve humankind’s further existence. Throughout John Milton’s Paradise Lost we encounter this constant struggle between good and evil, as the enigmatic and eternal Satan—a character who is perhaps the chief hero, and protagonist of the epic poem—wages vain war against God’s tyranny in heaven....   [tags: Literary Analysis]
