9780674821002: Sophocles' Tragic World: Divinity, Nature, Society
Críticas:

"Sophocles' Tragic World" is an organized collection of nine essays (plus introduction) on five plays, "Ajax, Trachiniae, Philoctetes, Antigone," and--especially--"OT," to which four of the chapters are devoted. The introduction and three of the essays (one on "Ant.," two on "OT") are new; the others are revisions of published articles, dating originally from 1976 to 1993. For several decades now, [Segal] has been so articulate about Greek tragedy, and so productive in his articulations, that one has acquired an unusually sharp sense...of the changing shape and direction that his readings have taken over the years. -- M.S. Silk "Classical Review"

Reseña del editor:

Much has been written about the heroic figures of Sophocles' powerful dramas. Now Charles Segal focuses our attention not on individual heroes and heroines, but on the world that inspired and motivated their actions - a universe of family, city, nature, and the supernatural. He shows how these ancient masterpieces offer insight into the abiding question of tragedy: how one can make sense of a world that involves so much apparently meaningless violence and suffering. In a series of engagingly written interconnected essays, Segal studies five of Sophocles' seven extant plays: Ajax, Oedipus Tyrannus, Philoctetes, Antigone, and the often neglected Trachinian Women. He examines the language and structure of the plays from several interpretive perspectives, drawing both on traditional philological analysis and on current literary and cultural theory.
