9780198721345: Choephori (Clarendon Paperbacks)

This new edition of Choephori takes into account the abundance of recent scholarship on Aeschylus' work. A. F. Garvie's introduction discusses the pre-Aeschylean Orestes tradition in literature and art, the character of the play itself--its ideas, imagery, structure, and staging--and the state of the transmitted text. This edition reprints the Greek text and critical apparatus from the well-received Oxford Classical Text, edited by D. L. Page, and includes 350 pages of commentary devoted to problems of interpretation, style and dramatic technique.

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1988. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Produced in 458 BC, Aeschylus Choephori stands as the second play in the Oresteian trilogy. The bloodshed begun in the first play with the murder of Agamemnon by his wife Clytemnestra is here continued when Agamemnon s son Orestes avenges his father s death by killing Clytemnestra. It is not until the third and final play, Eumenides, that peace is restored to the family of the Atreiadae. This edition (first published in hardback in 1986) takes into account the large amount of recent research on the play and tackles the problems presented by an unusually corrupt text. The introduction discusses the pre-Aeschylean Orestes tradition in literature (from Homer to Pindar) and art (representations on vases and reliefs), as well as the place of Choephori within the Oresteia, its imagery and dramatic structure, the questions of staging the play, and the manuscript tradition. Much of the commentary looks at problems of style, dramatic technique, and interpretation of the play, and before each scene is discussed an analysis of its contribution to the drama as a whole is supplied. The text and critical apparatus reproduced are those of D. L. Page (Oxford Classical Texts). Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780198721345
