Harvard University Press, Cambridge (Mass.) / London, 1987. XI,100p. Cloth wrps. Upper edge a bit foxed. Wrps a tiny bit damaged. 'Personnage méprisé dans la réalité politique, la femme ne se met à exister, aux jeux de la cité, que lorsqu'il s'agit d'imaginer sa mort au théâtre. Bien plus qu'une étude sur un thème de la tragédie, 'Façons tragiques de tuer une femme', en postulant judicieusement l'unité du genre tragique, offre à l'anthropologie de l'Antiquité un modèle remarquable pour une réflexion sur la fonction et le rôle spécifique de la tragédie dans la cité. Sous-tendue par le désir d'interroger la raison qui au Ve siècle poussait le citoyen à se rendre au théâtre pour y voir des morts de femmes, pariant sur l'importance d'une histoire de l'imaginaire, l'analyse de N. Loreaux suggère une réponse qui paraît fondamentale à qui veut mieux comprendre le fonctionnement des institutions de la cité. Parce qu'elle se risque à imaginer ce que la réalité politique voulait ignorer, la tragédie se révèle être la nécessaire contrepartie de cet autre genre civique qu'est l'histoire. En rêvant, le temps d'une représentation fictive, à la mort des femmes, les citoyens pourraient bien avoir gagné de mieux accepter une histoire qui idéalisait si bien la mort des hommes. (DAVID BOUVIER on the French original publication in Revue d'histoire des religions, 1988, p.208). From the library of the late Prof. W. Geoffrey Arnott. Antiquarian. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 30255

Über diesen Titel


In ordinary life an Athenian woman was allowed no accomplishments beyond leading a quiet and exemplary existence as wife and mother. Her glory was to have no glory. In Greek tragedy, however, women die violently and, through violence, master their own fate. It is a genre that delights in blurring the formal frontier between masculine and feminine. Through the subtlety of her reading of these powerful and ambiguous texts, Nicole Loraux elicits an array of insights into Greek attitudes toward death, sexuality, and gender.

Scrinium Classical Antiquity, member of the Dutch Association of Antiquarian Booksellers (NVvA - ILAB), stands for a specialized stock of new, secondhand and antiquarian books about Classical Antiquity. The main theme of our books is Classical Antiquity: texts and commentaries, translations, archeology, philosophy, travel, history, mythology, books for young people, philology, law, reception of classical motives in Middle Ages, Renaissance and our own time and neo-Hellenika (conptemporary Greece), and many more subjects. A more modest quantity of our books concerns countries, civilisations and religious movements on the edges of the classical world: e.g. Egypt, Middle East and Early Christianity. New books are partly in stock, partly to be ordered from publishers. We are connected to a large number of publishers and distributors, established both in the Netherlands and abroad.
