Description

Stories from the Greek Tragedians - By the Rev. Alfred J. Church - Greek tragedy is a form of theatre from Ancient Greece and Asia Minor. It reached its most significant form in Athens in the 5th century BC. Greek tragedy is an extension of the ancient rites carried out in honor of Dionysus, and it heavily influenced the theatre of Ancient Rome and the Renaissance. Tragic plots were most often based upon myths from the oral traditions of archaic epics. In tragic theatre, however, these narratives were presented by actors. The most important authors of Greek tragedies are Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides. The Story of The Love of Alcestis - The Story of the Vengeance of Medea - The Story of the Death of Hercules - The Story of the Seven Chiefs against Thebes - The Story of Antigone - The Story of Iphigenia in Aulis - The Story of Philoctetes, Or the Bow of Hercules - The Story of the Death of Agamemnon - The Story of Electra, Or The Return Of Orestes - The Story of The Furies, Or The Loosing Of Orestes - The Story of Iphigenia among the Taurians - The Story of the Persians, Or The Battle Of Salamis - The Story of Ion.show more
