Sixty years in the past, the collage of Chicago Press undertook a momentous undertaking: a brand new translation of the Greek tragedies that may be the final word source for lecturers, scholars, and readers.

It's Greenwich Village within the early Sixties, whilst ex-patriots, artists, and colourful bums are kings. A tiny stand promoting empanadas close to the nook of Bleecker and MacDougal streets is the heart of the motion for the shy narrator, an aspiring author simply out of school. on the stand he falls in with a crowd of kooky outcasts from Argentina who introduce him to their raucous adventures, melodramatic desires and ladies, rather a difficult little flamenco dancer from Buenos Aires.

Structure Menelaus. The naïve send-oﬀ Helen receives from the departing Teucer (158–63) presents the warrior as kindly if perhaps simple-minded. He is at least oblivious to the reality of the situation concerning Helen and her phantom. ) Helen interacts with the chorus. The audience of course expects the choral entry, but it is worth isolating the ways in which this passage fails to deliver on a ‘traditional’ parodos (choral entry song). The exchange falls naturally into three parts. As soon as Helen is left alone, she begins to sing (164–78).
As I shall argue, the chorus’s initial song is choreographed with large cloths that add colour and ﬂuid motion (line 179); Theonoë appears accompanied by torchbearers and incense, creating visual and olfactory eﬀects (line 865); Theoclymenus enters with an entourage that includes hunting dogs (line 1165); the actor playing Helen changes both mask and costume, but uniquely remains Helen (line 1184); the actor playing Menelaus changes both mask and costume, but remains Menelaus (line 1390); ﬁnally, the chorus leader physically stops Theoclymenus from entering the palace to murder his sister (line 1627).
The lack of precise parallelism between the Helen and Menelaus portions of the opening of the play mean that in some ways the decision in favour of Helen is already ﬁxed. 29 Certainly, when they ﬁnally recognize one another, there is a heartfelt reunion duet (625–97). Structurally, however, the play pits the characters against one another in a contest of literary identity. Now the audience knows this is not actually a play called Menelaus. 31 28 29 30 31 Touché, thinks Aristophanes, who the next year in Thesmophoriazusae engages with four scenes from Helen, identifying his dramatic character Euripides as the failed Menelaus surrogate, as metatheatre beautifully folds in on itself.
