Product Information

Description:

The laments of captive women found in extant Athenian tragedy constitute a fundamentally subversive aspect of Greek drama. In performances supported by and intended for the male citizens of Athens, the songs of the captive women at the Dionysia gave a voice to classes who otherwise would have been marginalized and silenced in Athenian society: women, foreigners, and the enslaved. The Captive Womans Lament in Greek Tragedy addresses the possible meanings ancient audiences might have attached to these songs. Casey Due challenges long-held assumptions about the opposition between Greeks and barbarians in Greek thought by suggesting that, in viewing the plight of the captive women, Athenian audiences extended pity to those least like themselves. Due asserts that tragic playwrights often used the lament to create an empathetic link that blurred the line between Greek and barbarian.After a brief overview of the role of lamentation in both modern and classical traditions, Due focuses on the dramatic portrayal of women captured in the Trojan War, tracing their portrayal through time from the Homeric epics to Euripides Athenian stage. The author shows how these laments evolved in their significance with the growth of the Athenian Empire. She concludes that while the Athenian polis may have created a merciless empire outside the theater, inside the theater they found themselves confronted by the essential similarities between themselves and those they sought to conquer. *Author: Due, Casey *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 199 *Publication Date: 2009/08/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.46 inches
