Abstract

Book VII of the Greek Anthology gathers a total of 748 epigrams that are, in general, epitaphs. Planudes copied 582 of them, of which eleven are not in the Palatinus, and it is uncertain why he excluded the other 179 copied in P. In the form of a dialog or not, since its origins the epitaph stages, even if implicitly, an ephemeral connexion between the deceased and the one who reads it. It is about immortalisation, about the dead keeping a link, by means of memory (mnema), with the world of the livings, achieved when his name is pronounced by the passer-by that reads it in the grave.

This volume, “Classics on stage yesterday and today” offers a valuable set of works about classical theater. It studies old works and also their reception and their presence in contemporary scenes of a significant number of countries. We can learn about some aspects of the greek tragedy and latin comedy, from structural elements to the analysis of characters or cultural features, but also its constant presence in modern stages and its exuberant vitality as seed for new works that appear continously in modern literatures

Abstract

Sung at festivals in honour of the gods or at banquets, heard in the theatre or in the agora, contemplated in the walls of temples or in table vessels, myths are part of the daily life of the Greeks. Zeus, and the deities of Olympus, Prometheus, Heracles, Oedipus, Theseus, Helen, Pandora, Ulysses are some of them, the most striking. Mythical narratives, whether they are known through texts or through images, participate in the construction of as varied domains of Greek experience as the polytheistic pantheon, food codes, relations between the sexes, the view of the phases of life and death or history communities.
