وكتبت ريفيو مطول عن الكتاب ده وضاع مني، لذلك هأكتفي بهذه النسخة المصغرة :D

تراجيديات أسخولوس، هي أول تراجيديات اغريقية أقراها. الكتاب بيضم التراجيديات السبعة اللي تبقت من أعمال اسخولوس، معظمهم بيرتبطوا ببعض في الأحداث.

أسخولوس من الكُتاب الملحمين والمؤثرين في عالم التراجيديا، فبيعتبروه المؤسس الحقيقي ليها، حيث أنه أول من أدخل الحوار والممثل الثاني للمسرحية، ده غير أن مسرحياته بتتحمور حول الدين وأن وجود الإنسان "خطيئة كبرى"


في مسرحياته فيه تداخل قوي بين عالم الآلهة وعالم البشر، على عكس مسرحيات كتير

Hice un promedio del libro porque, como era esperable, no todas las obras me gustaron por igual. No pretendo hacer una reseña detallada de cada una, sino que creo que sería mejor calificarlas y comentarlas brevemente para no terminar con un texto kilométrico. Los comentarios de las obras que conforman la Orestíada serán más breves porque, al estar hilvanadas, tendría que usar spoilers y no quiero (a pesar de que algunos ya deben conocer los finales gracias a los mitos). Aquí vamos.

بالاخره این کتاب بعد از یه روند طولانی تموم شد

کتاب رو که آغاز کردم و "آگاممنون" رو خوندم، در حد یک کتاب مقدس ستایشش کردم اما بعدش کیفیت و لذت کار اومد پایین. "نیازآوران" در حد متوسط چیز جالبی بود اما "الهگان انتقام" اگر بحث های سیاسی درونش رو کنار بذاریم، چیزی نداشت - لذت ادبی که هیچ. "پرومتئوس در بند" و "هفت دشمن تبس" باز بهتر از "الهگان انتقام" بودن اما شور خاصی درشون نبود. "پارسیان" هم که لذتی نداشت و یه نمایشنامه ی تبلیغاتی مال زمان خودش بود. "پناه جویان" هم به من لذت خاصی نداد

هل أنا أبالغ عندما أعطي خمس نجوم؟ لا أعتقد, إن كان العمل فني. التراجيديا الإغريقية هي من أعظم ما قدمه الإنسان, انها انعكاس ماسآة قدومه للوجود. ورغم ان اسلوب اسخولوس يعتبر بسيط جدا اذا تم مقارنته بمن جاء من بعده, الا أنك لن تشعر الا بهيبة وعظمة وقشعريرة كونية عند قرائتك للمسرحيات. عبد الرحمن بدوي يقدم ترجمة رائعة وفي المستوى, وهو يقوم بإيضاح كل شيء سواء في مقدمة كل مسرحية أو في الهوامش داخل المسرحية.

"Oedipus the King, "Prometheus Bound" and "The Bacchae" are among the very highest works of world literature. Except for William Shakespeare, no other playwright, not even Ibsen or Racine, approaches Sophocles, Euripides and Aeschylus, at their very best, for their wisdom, truth and formalistic mastery. I have been studying these 33 plays for over a dozen years in various translations and I feel that this edition - edited by David Grene and Richmond Lattimore - is the best complete set of transl ...more

خواندن این کتاب نیازمند داشتن پس زمینه ی ذهنی در مورد اساطیر یونانی ست.

Leí sólo algunas obras por el momento, más adelante leeré la Orestia. De las 90 obras que escribió Esquilo sólo siete han sobrevivido lamentablemente. No obstante son suficientes para darnos cuenta del genio de este gran autor griego que fue citado por Aristóteles en su poética.
En Las Suplicantes, el coro es omnipresente. Su presencia le otorga el sello característico a la Tragedia, alejándola del canto lírico y situándola como género nuevo. En esta obra se trata el drama de un grupo de doncell

Recensire?

Come si possono recensire le Tragedie di Eschilo?
Mi limiterò a dire che, soprattutto in Prometeo e nelle tre tragedie dell'Orestèa c'è tutto: l'analisi sociale, l'azione, l'introspezione dei personaggi, la lotta per il potere, il rapporto tra l'uomo ed il divino.... Insomma Eschilo è uno dei grandi capisaldi della cultura occidentale, una delle fonti del nostro modo di essere e di pensare.

Required text for school, otherwise I would not have purchased this book - Grene's translation pales in comparison to that of Smyth and other translators. Grene does a very poor job - I compared him line-by-line to a few others. The best translation of Prometheus Bound is by Smyth: http://www.theoi.com/Text/AeschylusPr....

Aischylos Orestie ist eigentlich nicht ein Buch sondern 3 bzw. 3 Stücke. Die meisten griechischen Tragödien waren anscheinend Trilogien und es gehörte wohl noch ein abschließendes witziges Stück dazu, das aber verloren gegangen ist.
Wie auch immer. Die Orestie besteht aus den Stücken
1. Agamemnon
2. Choephoren bzw. Die Spenderinnen am Grabe
3. Eumeniden bzw. Die Wohlwollenden

Die Namen sind je nach Übersetzung ein wenig unterschiedlich, nur bei Band 1 Agamemnon scheint man sich einig zu sein.

The Oresteia *****
One of the most striking things about The Oresteia is its dense imagery. The trilogy, presented on a bare stage with a strictly limited number of speakers, focuses on several key images and words that interact throughout the three parts. Imagery related to nets, houses, birds/animals, illness/healing and stains/cleaning, torches, sleeping/dreaming and sailing appear throughout. It is truly minimalist.

The Lattimore translation has many memorable lines and phrases including:

I recently read and reviewed the Oresteia of Aeschylus, translated by Richmond Lattimore. [I didn't like it that much.] The present work was much more entertaining. The five plays collected here are selected from The Complete Greek Tragedies - 4 Vol Set -- perhaps they are the greatest hits.

Agamemnon is pretty slow, but Prometheus Bound is rather remarkable. While most of the tragedies are fairly pious, this one is iconoclastic. It is no surprise that Prometheus should rail against his torturers

This only pertains to Sophocles: Oedipus the King. It was my first time reading this story and wasn't that difficult to follow. This translation is done well and is simple for the reader to follow the scenes.
There always seems to be a bit of action going on in this story. What I mean by that is there is always tension through the story which creates a healthy amount of suspense that engages the reader. There are moments of relief but they do not last long as the suspense builds again. You could

Se sabe que escribió más de 80 obras, pero sólo se conservan siete. Aún así, la fama de ESQUILO trasciende el tiempo y se le considera el Padre de la Tragedia Griega, y predecesor de SÓFOCLES y de EURÍPIDES. Como soldado, participó en las míticas batallas de Maratón y Salamina, luchando contra los persas, lo que le dio la experiencia para escribir obras como "Los Persas". Los argumentos de sus obras son profundos, referidos al mito, la religión y la pasión, y encuentran expresión en un lenguaje ...more

While reading the text I couldn't notice it was very reminiscent of Homer's work, like in the way warriors' lineage and skills were listed and the use of some similes. Being aware that the texts are incomplete, I still got the feeling that most tragedies weren't really that tragic; I can't help comparing them with Sophocles' tragedies, which seemed to me more engaging and powerful. For example, Aeschylus' tragedies are all about characters looking back and telling what already happened just to c ...more

This week’s reading included a book of Greek tragedies. So far I’ve read Agamemnon, Prometheus Bound, Oedipus the King, and I’m working on Antigone. I’m not really a big fan of Greek mythology (compared to other mythologies), and somehow I thought I would feel similarly about Greek tragedies. So far, though…I have to say, I’m really enjoying them. I prefer tragedies (or at least histories) to comedies when it comes to plays anyway, and these have some really great lines. Granted, they’re not the ...more

Yes, I did enjoy reading these plays but I was more in awe by their production. Aside from the chorus or orchestra (the extras), only three actors played all the characters in the play. And it just wasn't one play that Aeshylus, Sophocles or Euripedes created. They wrote three tragedies and a comedy to be performed in competition for their audiences.

What also helped in understanding and appreciating these plays was to listen to some lectures by Elizabeth Vandiver on the Greek Tragedy. Professor

Prometheus Bound is one of those overlooked tragedies that nonetheless has a lot of significance underlying its plot structure. Prometheus is like the terrorist who knows the plot while the bumbling powers that be cannot fathom that their own world is in peril and could collapse at any moment. The Hippolytus is a display of divine cruelty and injustice even in the structure of justice that functions in Greek religious, political and social thought. And Oedipus Rex and Antigone, are of course, ou ...more

I regularly come back to Greek Tragedy. For me, when it comes to insight into human nature it rivals the Old Testament. When it comes to drama it rivals Shakespeare. The best of Greek tragedy is nearly "scripture." I enjoyed reading and marking this edition and look forward to returning to it again to review what impressed me during this past reading and observing new insights that will come from a few more years lived.

Shout out to all the 'woes'. Gotta' love Aeschylus.

I would say, of the whole lot, I found the 'The Persians' and 'Prometheus' to be the most fascinating, particularly 'Persians'. While the Orestes trilogy was assuredly the most well-written, I just couldn't connect to it as well as the latter two works. All-in-all, not as difficult or dull as I was expecting; the translations are fresh, complex, and enjoyable.

Aeschylus (525 BC – 456 BC) [Ésquilo in Portuguese, Esquilo in Spanish] was an ancient Greek playwright. He is often recognized as the father or the founder of tragedy, and is the earliest of the three Greek tragedians whose plays survive extant, the others being Sophocles and Euripides. According to Aristotle, he expanded the number of characters in plays to allow for conflict among them; previou ...more
