Euripides / Davie, John / Rutherford, Richard:
Heracles and Other Plays - used book

ID: 426362

The dramas Euripides wrote toward the end of his life are remarkable for their stylistic innovation and adventurous plots. "Heracles" stands apart in its stark portrayal of human suffering and the deceptive power of the gods. In contrast, the satyr play "Cyclops" celebrates drink, sex, and self-indulgent hedonism. In the plays in this collection, which also includes "Iphigenia Among the Taurians," "Ion," and "Helen," "Euripides" exploits the comic potential to be found in traditional myth. While weaving plots full of startling shifts of tone, deception, and illusion as well as comedy, Euripides always reminds us how quickly fortunes can be reversed and invites his audience to view the world with skepticism and compassion.

Heracles/ Iphigenia Among the Taurians/ Helen/ Ion/ Cyclops: Of these plays, only 'Heracles' truly belongs in the tragic sphere with its presentation of underserved suffering and divine malignity. The other plays flirt with comedy and comic themes. Their plots are ironic and complex with deception and elusion eventually leading to reconciliation between mother and son in 'Ion', brother and sister in 'Iphigenia', and husband and wife in 'Helen'. The comic vein is even stronger in the satyric'Cyclops' in which the giant's inebriation and subsequent violence are treated as humorous. Together, these plays demonstrate Euripides' challenge to the generic boundaries of Athenian drama. ancient,ancient and classical literature,classical and early,drama,fairy tales,greek,greek and roman,history,history and criticism,literature and fiction Medieval, Penguin Classics
