Free download ã Ιφιγένεια η εν Αυλίδι ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook The Trojan War is despite its heroic background in many respects a domestic tragedy Mr Ru. One Final Play29 August 2018 Sydney Well as it turns out this was Euripides last play the reason being that he died before he could finish it This is sort of a bit of a turn of events where Greek plays are concerned because most of the time the reason we don t have the plays is because they have been lost you can probably blame Julius Caeser for that among other people but then again the Great Library did seem to be a bit of a fire magnet However just because he didn t finish it doesn t mean that it is necessarily incomplete namely because somebody else came along at a later date and decided to fix up what Euripides didn t get to do The problem is that when you have situations where a genius dies and his work is incomplete basically anybody who comes along to finish it off is basically going to do an incredibly shoddy job this was the case with Herge s final Tintin album So this play is basically about the time when the Greeks are trying to get to Troy but the gods seem to be against them because well the winds are blowing in the wrong direction That can be a bit of a problem when all you have are ships that are powered by sail Well sort of since not only were they powered by sail but they were also powered by the fact that they also had lots of people with really strong arms pushing and pulling on the oars in unison slaves if you will but I don t think the people who staffed the oars were slaves in every instance but then again this is ancient Greek drama so the normal people basically don t matter anyway You could say that this is a tragedy namely because the events here in Aulis basically resulted in the whole mess that Orestes landed up in though if we follow through his life we learn that he was a pretty hot headed individual anyway However the story isn t so much about Orestes but rather about Agamemnon his daughter Iphigenia and a few others Clytemnestra probably shouldn t be forgotten because she does happen to be Agamemnon s wife Well long suffering Clytemnestra it turns out that Agamemnon wasn t her first husband and the reason that she is the wife of Agamemnon is because he basically killed her first husband and took her as his wife Gee I sense a bit of hypocrisy here since I get the impression that while it was okay for him to steal somebody s wife when Paris did the same thing to his brother the entire Greek nation gets up in arms and goes to war Then again Paris wasn t Greek and even today there is still a lot of people who are incredibly uncomfortable with inter racial marriage especially when they happen to marry one of us white barbarians The thing is that Agamemnon is being pretty sneaky Then again if he had went to his wife and said can you send our daughter to me I have to sacrifice her so that Artemis will change the direction of the winds I suspect that he wouldn t have received a positive reply So instead he says that he has arranged for her to be married Well sort of because it ends up being a lie namely because he did actually want to sacrifice her so that Artemis would change the direction of the winds Talk about a dedicated man this guy is willing to sacrifice his own daughter to save the unfaithful wife of his brother Then again as some have suggested there is the whole oath that they swore to defend Helen s or should I say Menelaus honour Or was it there is also the suggestion that Helen really was just an excuse to destroy a powerful city at the entrance to some very important trade routes hey it isn t as if anybody else has gone to war based upon some really flimsy proposition Actually let us consider the anti war aspects here for a second because there are some particularly with Agamemnon wanting to sacrifice his daughter The thing is that I never really thought about the whole idea of sacrifice when I initially read the play but while this whole oh no he s going to sacrifice his daughter mentality we sometimes forget that there are a whole bunch of men somebodies son nonetheless who are also going to be sacrifice into the meat grinder that happens to be a war Funnily enough these young men tend to be the ones who end up in the firing line while the kings and commanders the important people if you will usually end up sitting the whole thing out from a tend at the top of a hill You know we can t have the generals in the firing line because who is going to lead the men otherwise Well it seems that this didn t particularly bother Alexander or Napoleon Still we shouldn t forget that this is Ancient Greece that we are talking about and as it happens these guys are going to be in the thick of battle we know that from the Iliad However I guess Euripides is drawing on the fact that while wars are played out between the kings and the generals the pieces they are fought with armies and it is the individuals who make up these armies that end up being the ones who suffer the conseuences and in fact they happen to be the ones that never come home Does that make the generals and kings cowards though I guess that is a uestion that I ll leave up in the air for the time being because it does raise some interesting thoughts Well the story is great but the play itself well honestly I can t tell which is Euripides and which isn t but then again I read the English and not the Greek and even though I sort of understand Greek I certainly am not fluent in it so I wouldn t be able to tell the difference anyway Actually I suspect that you have to have a pretty good eye and also a pretty good understanding of the author s style to be able to pick up some of these differences Honestly while I do like my books I m certainly not that good that I d be able to spot such things

This was an interesting read for me as it told me why the Trojan war happened the story here is like a preuel and has a back story to many of Iliad s main charactersThe story itself was a touch shocking father sacrificing his daughter to appease a god just writing it sounds gruesome Anyway I did some background reading and learnt that Euripides wrote this during the Peloponnesian War wanting to express the pointlessness of it I read how there had been many causalities and Euripides was trying to make the point that it s not a fine and glorious thing to die for one s country Anyway no one heard him and that war carried onI read a translation that is available free it was okayish it s matter of factness I thought slowed down the drama Later I would flick through a recent translation and I thought worked better it was dramatic So I hope to read this again but one that is translated recently
