Euripides take on the vengeance of Orestes9 March 2012 I clearly remember reading this play for university and one of the things that the lecturer spoke about was how we have, from all three of the surviving tragedians, a extant plays that deals with the same subject, being the murder of Aegisthus and Clytaemnestra by the two of her children, Orestes and Electra I believe that we actually looked at all three at university, if only to compare the similarities, and differences, in how the three tr [...]

You may find a fascinating case study in artistic approach when you compare the Libation Bearers of Aeschylus and the Electra plays of Sophocles and Euripides The three great Greek tragedians all wrote a play about the same story Orestes s and Electra s revenge on their mother Clytemnestra for the murder of their father Agamemnon The format and general outline is the same in all three plays yet the effect is unique to the playwright.Aeschylus s play is resonant with mythical symbolism This is ex [...]

Translation I read by Paul Roche Wow I actually enjoyed this play I love how Euripides portrays the characters realistically, not idealized I loved the love hate feelings Electra and Orestes have for their mother Also, their reactions after her death are written so brutally real which made a huge impression on me.

So I had to read this for school And I was really excited actually, because I love Greek mythology so much, but this book was kinda flat plot wise The thing is this play is very confusing if you know nothing about Greek mythology thank god i do, because if I didn t I would fail my exam Also the grammar structure is really weird I guess that s because of the translation.Anyway this story was basically a pair of siblings wanting to avenge their father s dead by killing their stepdad and mother.And [...]

I really enjoyed Medea, she s one of my favorite heroines ever Vindictive, unapologetic, clever and passionate but not wise, very feminine but darkly so, she s the force of animus that destroys Jason, a temptress and a witch who goes to the ultimate extreme and murders her own children to get back at an unfaithful husband That is to say not your typical run of the mill woman She s so dangerous and scary that ultimately she seems supernatural to me she IS a witch and although I understand her fee [...]

I think I know how creative writing professors feel when they receive an unfinished piece that was clearly written six minutes before class in crayon on the back of a Panda Express receipt This was the Panda Express receipt of Greek tragedy I feel like Euripides saw that everyone else was writing about Electra and decided that, meh, he should probably pump something out real quick for appearance s sake On the bright side, this is probably the closest Greek tragedy has ever come to passing the Be [...]

From all the books I have read for high school until now, I would rate this one as a meh one Not my favorite one but definitely not the worst The only thing that bothered me is the fact that so much background information is required to fully understand the plot.

From my edition s introduction, the translator Gilbert Murray writes that Euripides Electra has the distinction of being the best abused and not the best understood of ancient tragedies And I agree It is very different from Sophocles Electra, even as regards to the portrayal of Electra and Orestes themselves In a way Euripides is strikingly realistic In Euripides play both Orestes and Electra are far from heroic, the murder of Aegisthus is shown as, at the best, inglorious that of Clytaemnestra [...]

Adoring Sophocle s Electra, which I read in college, I decided to read the version of Euripedes, who critics claim writes far cynically about gods and humankind , to see how he handled the drama Euripide s version was exalted, dark, and tragic, much like the version by Sophocles, but the characters and their motives were strikingly distinct Euripides has the somber and realistic vision of the two dramatists The character Electra as imagined by Euripides sank beneath hardship, self pity and the [...]

Like most of other readers, I also prefer Sophocles Electra, though the story is prety interesting to read in different perspectives 480 406 .


Sarah

The Greeks really had a tendency of repeating themselves, didn t they Often times , many plays by these ancient dramatists basically tell the same story, it s all just a matter of whose writing the reader watcher prefers In the case of Electra, there are essentially two tellings of the exact same story, one by Euripides and one by Sophocles I have already reviewed the Sophocles version, so I suppose I will do a review of this one as well.I feel that there isn t really a need to go into that det [...]

A beautiful tragedy by the great ancient Greek playwright Euripides The play is centered on revenge and justice, where the children of Clytemnestra, Electra and her brother Orestes avenge the murder of their own father by the hands of his wife Clytemnestra and her lover Aegistus at the end of the play What I liked in Euripides version of the play is its somehow realistic form as well as the depiction of the deep psychological aspects and conflicts of the characters, shown, for instance, in the c [...]

I hadn t read a Greek play since high school, but this was very cheap at my favorite used book store And I really liked it Very simple in terms of plot Electra and Orestes reunite after their mother and her lover kill their father and send Orestes into exile, and they mostly Electra decide that justice requires them to kill the killers So they do and that s pretty much it But the Chorus is used well to represent kind of the values of the community, and I m intrigued with the way that all the vio [...]


Will

Continuing my journey through Euripides, I read Electra, a story about filial piety, sacrifice, and repercussions I had previously read Sophocles version translated by Anne Carson Electra is racked with pain from her father s murder, and not afraid to show it and seek revenge Euripides loves strong female character, and unfortunately the deus ex machina I know I say this a lot, but the predictable appearance of an all powerful god or two bothers me But this isn t enough to turn me away from the [...]

We finally got to find out how Aegisthus was murdered.My favourite part of this play was seeing how Electra s character is written differently from her character in the Orestia In there, she s given very little dialogue or agency, as apparently befits a woman of that time.This Electra is outspoken, yelling at her relatives for the things they should have done for her, and taking an active part in the action of the story Euripides writes women better, I guess.


Alexander Rolfe

I m still casting about trying to find a justification for the killing of Clytemnestra This Electra faults Clytemnestra for lust, and says her Electra s exile is twice as bad as Iphigenia s death Fail Orestes almost balks, wondering if it was a demon pretending to be a god telling him to do this Interesting And Electra feels some remorse afterwards This was a tough one for the Greeks.


Jess Grayson

I liked the different take on Clytaemnestra s murder by Orestes and Electra, but I think I preferred Aeschylus Oresteia


Helga

This is the story of Electra and her brother Orestes as they avenge their father Agamemnon s death, by killing his murderer, their mother.


Laura (bbliophile)

I have no idea how to rate this book, but let s just say that I m very glad that it s over.

Karin

It s inevitable to compare it to Sophocles Electra when having just read that tragedy as well.And this Electra comes across much cautious, her grief quieter, her speech less emotional and sensible, even though she asks to be the one to kill Clytemnestra.I liked that Electra and Orestes have time for dialogue, and that Electra too has to purge in the end But this version also seems misogynistic.And once again I was on Clytemnestra s side after hearing her arguments, which demanded the reader [...]
