I cannot remember at this moment what motivated me to read or reread these plays; something else I read, no doubt. I remember Greek tragic drama very fondly from high school, where Mrs.

Smith inspired me in many of my present-day literary loves hello, Hemingway and Homer. This triptych concerns the mythic curse on the House of Thebes, which I will retell quickly in my own words. Ahead: spoilers.

Oedipus was both to the Theban King Laius and Queen Jocasta, but upon his birth, an oracle prophesied that this baby boy would grow up to murder his father and marry his mother. Wishing to avoid this fate, Laius took the boy out in the woods, pierced his heels and pinned them together, and left him to die.

Now, this is no way to avoid the fates. Oedipus was raised by a foster father and mother who claimed him as their own, until as a young man he heard this prophecy given, and not wishing to fulfill it against the parents he knew and claimed, he fled them. They quarreled, and fought, and Oedipus killed the older man guess who this will turn out to be. He continues on the road to Thebes, a city-state that has just lost its king to a mysterious murder; he solves the riddle of the Sphinx, marries their queen, and happily begets four children.

And Oedipus curses the murderer, or anyone who would hide his identity, with death or banishment. This will have consequences. Here the play ends. There is some ambivalence, at least for me, in identifying the fatal flaw or crime of the tragic hero in this play. It will be much clearer in Antigone. Oedipus is indeed guilty of murdering his father and marrying his mother — terrible crimes, to be sure — but he did both unknowingly, and to his knowledge had every right to kill in self defense and marry.

I think his fatal flaw is at least shared by his parents: the crime was in trying to avoid the predestined fate assigned them all by the gods.

One wonders, if Oedipus had been raised at home, how these things would have come to pass; clearly differently, as he would have known his parents. Presumably he would have been more at fault. But at any rate, the point is made that it is futile to avoid the fate assigned you by the gods. Perhaps his limited responsibility here is what earns Oedipus a somewhat reduced sentence — of which, more in the next installment. I enjoyed this play for its feeling. The characters are passionate, emotional, and all of this is well evoked by the somewhat dramatic but this is drama, after all!

Embed Size px x x x x Before the palace of Oedipus, King of Thebes. A central door and two lateral doors open onto a platform which runs the length of the facade. On the platform, right and left, are altars; and three steps lead down into the "orchestra," or chorus-ground. At the beginning of the action these steps are crowded by suppliants who have brought branches and chaplets of olive leaves and who lie in various attitudes of despair. The breath of incense rises from the city With a sound of prayer and lamentation.

Of the three Theban plays Antigone is the third in order of the events depicted in the plays, but it is the first that was written. Antigone is made up of episodes i. The choral odes have two main functions: they offer a reflection on the events unfolding, and they allow time for the three actors to change costumes.

 В него попал зараженный файл, сэр. Я абсолютно в этом уверен. Лицо Стратмора побагровело. - Мистер Чатрукьян, такое уже случалось. Нет никакого файла, который мог бы заразить ТРАНСТЕКСТ. - Вы ошибаетесь, сэр! - вскричал Чатрукьян. - И если он проникнет в главную базу данных… - Что еще за файл, черт возьми.

После бесчисленных проверок на контрольно-пропускных пунктах он получил шестичасовой гостевой пропуск с голографическим текстом и был препровожден в роскошное помещение, где ему, как было сказано, предстояло вслепую оказать помощь Отделению криптографии - элитарной группе талантливых математиков, именуемых дешифровщиками. В течение первого часа они, казалось, даже не замечали его присутствия. Обступив громадный стол, они говорили на языке, которого Беккеру прежде никогда не доводилось слышать, - о поточных шифрах, самоуничтожающихся генераторах, ранцевых вариантах, протоколах нулевого понимания, точках единственности. Беккер наблюдал за ними, чувствуя себя здесь лишним. Они рисовали на разграфленных листах какие-то символы, вглядывались в компьютерные распечатки и постоянно обращались к тексту, точнее - нагромождению букв и цифр, на экране под потолком, 5jHALSFNHKHHHFAF0HHlFGAFFj37WE fiUY0IHQ434JTPWFIAJER0cltfU4.

Во мне течет цыганская кровь, мы, цыганки, не только рыжеволосые, но еще и очень суеверные. Кольцо, которое отдает умирающий, - дурная примета. - Вы знаете эту девушку? - Беккер приступил к допросу. Брови Росио выгнулись. - О. Я вижу, вам действительно очень нужно это Кольцова. Беккер мрачно кивнул.

Итак, где ключ. Хейл попытался пошевелить руками, но понял, что накрепко связан.

 Мы позвонили! - не сдавалась Мидж.  - Он сказал, что у них все в порядке. Фонтейн стоял, тяжело дыша.

 И все же он отдал кольцо, - сказал Фонтейн. - Вы правы, сэр. Но он не искал глазами убийцу.

 Чья смена? - громко спросил он, пробегая глазами список. Согласно расписанию, в полночь должен был заступить на двойную смену новый сотрудник по имени Зейденберг. Чатрукьян еще раз обвел глазами пустую лабораторию и нахмурился.
