9780195392890: Adventures with Iphigenia in Tauris: A Cultural History of Euripides' Black Sea Tragedy

Human sacrifice, a spirited heroine, a quest ending in a hairsbreadth escape, the touching reunion of long-lost siblings, and exquisite poetry?these features have historically made Euripides' Iphigenia in Tauris one of the most influential of Greek tragedies. Yet, despite its influence and popularity in the ancient world, the play remains curiously under-investigated in both mainstream cultural studies and more specialized scholarship. With Adventures with Iphigenia in Tauris, Edith Hall provides a much-needed cultural history of this play, giving as much weight to the impact of the play on subsequent Greek and Roman art and literature as on its manifestations since the discovery of the sole surviving medieval manuscript in the 1500s. The book argues that the reception of the play is bound up with its spectacular setting on the southern coast of the Crimean peninsula in what is now the Ukraine, a territory where world history has often been made. However, it also shows that the play's tragicomic tenor and escape plot have had a tangible influence on popular culture, from romantic fiction to Hollywood action films. The thirteen chapters illustrate how reactions to the play have evolved from the ancient admiration of Aristotle and Ovid, the Christian responses of Milton and Catherine the Great, the anthropological ritualists and theatrical Modernists including James Frazer and Isadora Duncan, to recent feminist and postcolonial dramatists from Mexico to Australia. Individual chapters are devoted to the most significant adaptations of the tragedy, Gluck's opera Iphigénie en Tauride and Goethe's verse drama Iphigenie auf Tauris. Richly illustrated and accessibly written, with all texts translated into English, Adventures with Iphigenia in Tauris argues elegantly for a reappraisal of this Euripidean masterpiece.

Recensione:

In this superb and richly detailed study, Adventures with Iphigenia in Tauris, Edith Hall has orchestrated, with impassioned and assiduous attention, this remarkable afterlife of Iphigenia. ( Marina Warner, The Times Literary Supplement)

Here, with patient elucidation and deep reading, she advocates the qualities of a work over a longue durée, and calls us to rethink the very character and acope of tragedy. ( Marina Warner, The Times Literary Supplement)

Descrizione libro Condizione libro: New. Oxford University Press, Oxford, 2013. 378p. Cloth wrps. 'With characteristic panache and immense erudition, Edith Hall takes us on a fascinating journey through a broad sweep of time and place to offer a fresh assessment of Euripides' least well-known play and its cultural aftermath. One of the most influential plays in pagan antiquity, this emotionally complex drama has been largely overlooked outside the academy over the past several decades. By exploring the variant readings, visual images and inter-texts that emanate from the play, Hall puts Euripides' Black Sea tragedy back on the map and demonstrates its continued relevance for today.'
