Alcesti Author Euripides Review ô 107 Toccanti dell'opera è l'intuizione del valore assoluto dell'eros compatibile anche con la sfera della morte nella uale i due sposi proiettano la durata perenne del loro legame L'analisi di Paduano fa emergere la sottile strategia del testo offrendo prospettive critiche di grande interes. 355I think it s hard to judge a version of a play when you haven t read the original so forgive me for dropping critics on the story line instead of on the adaptation I thought this play was very interesting Admetos is going to die but he is afraid to Since no one wants to die in his place his wife Alcestis decides to do so Everything that comes from this is uite thought provoking Admetos begs Alcestis to stay with him and he mourns her loss which is all very ironic since he let her die The most powerful part though is when Admetos gets mad at his father for not dying for him and they start arguing over whose fault it is that Alcestis died and I thought these parts were the best because it s about the real reason that Alcestis diedPheresYou call me a cowardBe careful what names you use for usWho failed to die for you at your reuestThink of the names that will be found for youAdmetosLet the noblest woman on this earth Die because he dare notHe knows he made a mistakePheresThe only mistake would have been Dying for you The mistakeMade by that poor fool there AlcestisWhich develops into an even bigger argument where I was totally like OOOOHHHH TELL HIM BOIII So to me everything involving the selfishness of Admetos was really interesting And I thought the part where Heracles gets totally wasted and is reenacting all his heroic deeds with his servants was pretty comical What I didn t like however was that Alcestis is being brought back for two reasons One Heracles is being the hero again which he really doesn t deserve because it just boosts his ego Two Admetos doesn t deserve it at all I read in other reviews that this happy ending is to think about what s left unsaid but I just didn t experience it that way Three no juicy details about how it went just two sentences about it from Heracles I also got a bit annoyed by how God is being portrayed as non omnipotent and I thought it didn t really add much to the storyAll in all it s surely not a bad read and it reads pretty easily so it s worth the try

Alcesti Author Euripides Review ô 107 Alcesti è la più antica fra le tragedie di Euripide a noi pervenute Ispirata a un mito di cui si narra anche nel Simposio di Platone essa mette in scena una storia d'a che ha per protagonisti il re di Tessaglia Admeto e la sua sposa Alcesti Admeto ottiene da Apollo la possibilità di s. I m pretty sure this was either a masterpiece or a train wreck I m leaning towards masterpiece Admetus knows he will die soon but Death offers him the chance to live if he can find someone to take his place Admetus wife Alcestis accepts As Latti writes in the introduction the tale isn t so much How noble must a wife be to take her husband s place in death as How selfish and cowardly must a husband be to let his wife die for him But Heracles rescues Alcestis and brings her back to life in the last five pages We don t hear from her after her revivification which leaves the reader wondering how this family can ever be reconciled can such a noble wife return to living with and loving a man who let her die for him This is supposed to be a tragicomedy but I think that the ending is intentionally lacking in satisfaction to force the reader to consider what s left unsaidI wonder if this myth had any bearing on Shakespeare s A Winter s Tale The endings remind me of each other so
