L’oracolo di Apollo nelle tragedie attiche sul mito di Oreste

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review


Peculiar aspects of the three great Attic tragedians’ approach to the divine can be interestingly brought to light through an analysis of their different adaptations of the Orestes myth. A key role in the relevant dramatic structures is played by the oracle of Apollo, unmentioned in the Homeric version of this myth but possibly already present in Stesichorus’ Oresteia. The article investigates how this element is dealt with in the extant corpus of Attic tragedy, focusing in particular on Aeschylus’ Libation Bearers and Eumenides, on Sophocles’ Electra, and on Euripides’ Electra and Orestes.
