Traduzione e commento della Medea di Studley By Michela Toto
Paperback: $7.63

Nel teatro senecano dominato dalla tensione, che talvolta sconfina nell’enfasi, dai toni macabri, dalle descrizioni orripilanti e dal pathos esasperato, è possibile cogliere la visione... More > di una titanica opera di sconvolgimento dell’ordine naturale: Ercole furioso uccide la moglie e i figli; Medea uccide i propri figli per vendicarsi del tradimento di Giasone; Fedra si innamora follemente del figliastro Ippolito; Edipo è l’assassino del padre e lo sposo della madre; Tieste si ciba delle carni dei figli che il fratello Atreo gli ha bandito; Deianira uccide inconsapevolmente Ercole credendo di legarlo a sé con un filtro d’amore; Agamennone è ucciso dalla moglie Clitemnestra. A predominare è il nefas, la scelleratezza somma, in una sorta di ‘rovesciamento’ dei valori positivi proclamati da Seneca filosofo; è il furor a prendere sempre il sopravvento sulla ratio e a guidare il comportamento irragionevole e folle dei protagonisti.< Less
Molly Divorced By Damian Westfall

Download immediately.
Using the Medea tragedies of Euripides and Seneca, Damian Westfall creates a new novel, Molly Divorced. The novel is a minimalist dialogue depicting a post-modern Medea (Now Molly), whose husband,... More > Jack, abandons her for a younger woman. Betrayed, wounded, and brimming with hate she sacrifices her love for her children and kills them because she knows that this will cause the deepest pain to her ex-husband. Westfall’s debut novel, Molly Divorced, is a concise example of narrative language pared down to the minimum essentials. Standing on the shoulders of Beckett and Carver, Damian Westfall has reinvented the Medea myth in this new groundbreaking novel.< Less
Tradurre i classici: il caso di John Studley By Michela Toto

L’attività traduttiva svolta dal giovane Studley è da me analizzata in questo lavoro di ricerca, autore che oltre alla fonte senecana contamina la sua versione con... More > l’inserzione di motivi presenti in altre fonti della classicità greca e latina. La traduzione della Medea di Studley assurge a speculum, ‘specchio’ (funzione, questa, che caratterizza la maggior parte dei drammi e delle riscritture rinascimentali inglesi), affinché i Potenti possano scorgere ciò che altrimenti resterebbe occulto ai loro occhi, ovvero l’impossibilità di sottrarsi ai decreti del Destino. Tuttavia, il Nostro non si limita alla contaminatio di più fonti, ma dà prova della sua originalità modificando del tutto il primo Coro della tragedia senecana e apportando innovazioni in vari luoghi del dramma in risposta alle esigenze della sua epoca. Studley, infatti, mostra un volto nuovo dell’irata e folle figura di menade latina nel tentativo di marginare l’autonomia e il potere risultati così inquietanti nella fonte classica.< Less
