    Electra Kindle ´ Paperback electra pdf, Electra PDFEPUB WARNING Spoilery spoilers that spoil spoileringlyI like it when I approach a book with the suspicions a scalded cat approaches a pond only to discover the water was good and it doesn't want to get out This book worked like that because of the reviews that spoilt it for me that there'd be huge deviations from the canonical story of Electra the House of Atreus as per Aeschylus Sophocles Euripides I started reading it with hackles already raised I mean reviews said that Electra would be involved in a significant way in the murder of Agamemnon Beg yer pardon How could it possibly work in any novel worth the pence paid for it I couldn't fathom The whole point of Electra's role no her existence in Greek mythology is her misguided love for her father and the things she does for that love Siggy Freud didn't say The Electra Complex is when you hate 'n' loathe your daddy and wan

    Electra Kindle ´ Paperback electra pdf, Electra PDFEPUB Electra has the feel of an epic remarkably even though it is a fairly short book It tells such an epic story and populates it with characters of vivid personality and fallibility shown through judiciously selected scenes of gripping drama Treece wisely doesn’t bother re telling the Iliad a tale that has been retold over and over in modern historical fiction so freuently that I’ve almost got Troy fatigue from the slew of Troy based novels I’ve been reading recently Treece instead focuses on telling the story of the treacherous blood feud of the Mycenaean royal family through the eyes of those left behind; namely Princess Electra daughter of Agamemnon and Clytemnest

    Electra Kindle ´ Paperback electra pdf, Electra PDFEPUBThe story of Electra and the unhappy House of Atreus is one of my favorites in all of Greek drama and I wasn't sure if it could be portrayed so vividly outside of Richard Strauss' opera and the original Greek plays But Treece took the standard stor

    Electra Kindle ´ Paperback electra pdf, Electra PDFEPUBIf you’ve ever watched some of the classic Greek plays particularly those surrounding the Trojan War some of it may have been slightly confusing The dramatists assumed that most of the viewers knew the names of the characters and had a rough idea of the events The plays were to put those events in perspective or serve as a warning for future

    Electra Kindle ´ Paperback electra pdf, Electra PDFEPUBMore lesbianism and ritual prostitution than delicate stomachs are likely to accommodate promises the review uote blazoned across the front cover but this is a 1963 edition and to sensibilities forged after the beginning of sexual intercourse it's a book you'd call haunting strange sensual but hardly filthy Treece gives Electra's own account of the Atreides' bloody end taking Robert Graves' lead in unearthing older myths within the classical versions we know He then matches that with what historians have pieced

    Electra Kindle ´ Paperback electra pdf, Electra PDFEPUBAn old woman tells her story to a Hittite doctor in Dorian Dark Age Greece She claims to be Electra daughter of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra the last great Achaean rulers of Mycene Here at the close of the Greek Bronze Age are portraits of Helen and Paris Odysseus and Achilles Iphigeneia and Orestes Electra and Pylades all as they might have been in reality Treece writes an imaginative darkly violent tale set convincingly in a richly described Greece culminating with the overthrow of Mycenaean civilisation by the brutal illiterate but pragmatic Dorians

    Electra Kindle ´ Paperback electra pdf, Electra PDFEPUBAfter a recent foray into nonfiction about the late Bronze Age and the fall of civilizations I went back to this novel which I read many many years ago and which I still remembered in pieces It's well written apparently Treece was a bit of a poet as well as a novelist but I think his shtick was to turn myth into history he does this with Oedipus and Jason as well and basically the four decades since this was written have contained archaelogical advances that pretty much rendered his historicization totally invalid There was no nomadic Dorian invasion no 500 year return to primitivism in Ancient Greece the palaces at My

    Electra Kindle ´ Paperback electra pdf, Electra PDFEPUBGrimly compelling; the story of Electra told by herself She recalls the horror of the sacrifice of her sister Iphigenia her mother Clytemnestra's revenge upon Agamemnon for allowing the killing of his own child the madness of her brother Orestes; the fall of Mycenae and the coming of the Dorians She recalls the gentle eunuch slave who loved her and her love of the man she marries A princess becomes a ueen but ends in obscurity betrayed by her surviving sister branded as a subject and a thrall by Mycenae's conuerors
