This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1904 edition. Excerpt: ...and 8p6povs KaWtffTadiovs & eivoy Karh nbvrov.' Accurate rhythmical recitation of choral odes, so far from being inconsistent with due expressiveness, helps to reveal the effective harmony between sense and form. A fluent and distinct enunciation is needed, and careful practice, until the rhythm takes care of itself, or becomes only a sub-consciousness, while the mind of the reader dwells upon the thought, the imagery, and the feeling. in.: L_ iui _s L_ Ii v i_ _w_aii--w w II--w w I--w w I--w w I _ A II I. 4.4.4. 4. 4.

The sentiment is still present that found utterance at the close of the first stasimon, the captives' regret and vain imaginings. The rhythm of the two odes is very similar. The movement here is quite uniform. Both the uniformity and the lack of anacrusis in the first period of strophe 1 add to the plaintive singing effect. There is some recovery from this steadfast plaint at the close of strophe 2, where the uninterrupted flow of cyclic dactyls is to be noted in the last verse but one. Observe the resemblance in sound between ZXtyov and hrarov, /hoxttcus and Xoyxms, which occupy corresponding positions in strophe and antistrophe 1. The recurrence of the same strain of music and the same dance-figure enforces such verbal correspondences, which occur frequently and cannot be regarded as accidental.

It is a chapter in sacred history, and the one long strophe has a certain tranquillity of rhythm, with a single pointed departure therefrom in the fourth...

Euripides, one of the three great Greek tragedians was born in Attica probably in 485 B.C. of well-to-do parents. In his youth he cultivated gymnastic pursuits and studied philosophy and rhetoric. Soon after he received recognition for a play that he had written, Euripides left Athens for the court of Archelaus, king of Macedonia. In his tragedies, Euripides represented individuals not as they ought to be but as they are. His excellence lies in the tenderness and pathos with which he invested many of his characters. Euripides' attitude toward the gods was iconoclastic and rationalistic; toward humans-notably his passionate female characters-his attitude was deeply sympathetic. In his dramas, Euripides separated the chorus from the action, which was the first step toward the complete elimination of the chorus. He used the prologue as an introduction and explanation. Although Euripides has been charged with intemperate use of the deus ex machina, by which artifice a god is dragged in abruptly at the end to resolve a situation beyond human powers, he created some of the most unforgettable psychological portraits. Fragments of about fifty-five plays survive; some were discovered as recently as 1906. Among his best-known plays are Alcestis (438 B.C.), Medea and Philoctetes (431 B.C.), Electra (417 B.C.), Iphigenia in Tauris (.413 B.C.), The Trojan Women (415 B.C.), and Iphigenia in Aulis Iphigenia (c.405 B.C.). Euripides died in Athens in 406. Shortly after his death his reputation rose and has never diminished.
