    PDF/EPUB Sophocles Ý PDF/EPUB Αἴας PDF ☆ Ý 11th century.co Αἴας kindle, Αἴας ePUB“To mock foes is that not the sweetest mockery?”Athena’s cruel words leave Odysseus hesitant in the opening scene of Ajax one of Sophocles’ most intense and dramatic plays The powerful Goddess has made the Greek hero Ajax lose his mind and fight herds of cattle instead of men in his delusion To make his shame perfect she wants Odysseus to see his disgrace When Odysseus refuses she mocks him asking provocatively if he is afraid of a madman And the clever Odysseus answers without hesitation this time “Had he been sane no fear had made me shrink”That is a striking thought and essentially true A Greek hero however powerful and angry however dangerous to fight is a known entit

    PDF/EPUB Sophocles Ý PDF/EPUB Αἴας PDF ☆ Ý 11th century.co Αἴας kindle, Αἴας ePUBAjax’s story left an impression after the first time I heard about it It was sometime after my early attempts of trying to read Homer’s The Iliad Ajax is one of the heroes fighting on the Greek side today like many other heroes in this story he is pretty much forgotten as the focus is on Achilles and Hector However as I continued to read different translations of The Iliad his story stayed with me For me this was just another thing that convinced me this epic poem is anti warview spoilerAjax has to compete with the smooth orator Odysseus to win Achilles’s armour Not competent

    PDF/EPUB Sophocles Ý PDF/EPUB Αἴας PDF ☆ Ý 11th century.co Αἴας kindle, Αἴας ePUBBeing my first encounter with Greek tragedy I wondered how Sophocles would approach the life of Ájax whom readers know from the Iliad and Greek mythology in general Well he does so by centering in the lonesome end of the great Greek hero and the aftermaths of madness Sophocles reduces the scope of the legend to focus on the darkness of being faced with one's own fate Ájax is lost in the madness of his fury whether he kills his comrades in arms or the cattle is unimportant for modern readers It is the realisation of his actions after the intoxication of fury what bring him down Ájax sees how the walls close around him as he becomes an outcast for his actions Sophocles portrays such state of loneliness with great mastery Ájax' last words are a treasure for literature

    PDF/EPUB Sophocles Ý PDF/EPUB Αἴας PDF ☆ Ý 11th century.co Αἴας kindle, Αἴας ePUBSophocles wrote a few plays centered around war and Odysseus; this is probably one of the most famous out of them as well as the best written of them all Ajax focuses on the title character who is a revered warrior whom many people may remember from Homer's Iliad However this particular story centers mainly around the downfall of the hero whose warlike nature drives him to almost kill his friends; his guilt is what really gets him in the end Ajax himself is not necessarily a bad man but he is so used to his violent lifestyle that his animalistic side tends to take over When he nearly kills his friends the goddess Athena makes him kill sheep and cows instead When Ajax discovers that he almost committed a terrible crime he feels guilty to the point that he commits suicide In this character the reader can see a true tragedy in that Ajax is not a

    PDF/EPUB Sophocles Ý PDF/EPUB Αἴας PDF ☆ Ý 11th century.co Αἴας kindle, Αἴας ePUBIt is impossible to dislike such a masterpiece The Ájax's tragedy is basically about the pride of a powerfull warrior who seeks victory without the Gods help and infuriate them because of his behaviour His disgrace is the disgrace of all his family and his men as we can see in their lament
