- Bacchae - 791 words
Bacchae The Bacchae represents an authentic interpretation that is full of temptation in the natural world. I am going to compare the temptations of society that we as individuals encounter everyday with the allure of nature in the Bacchae, specifically focusing on temptation offered by Dionysos. Humans in a civilized society have to make choices everyday resulting in their decisions whether they have positive or negative contrasting effects in compilation to societies norms. From the beginning of the Bacchae, Pentheus seems to be the only rational person in the play. He does not give into his temptations to join the others to frolic in the forest. He is however very intrigued by Dionysoss o ...

- Hamlet Vs The Bacchae - 654 words
Hamlet Vs. The Bacchae Hamlet and The Bacchae have many similarities and differences, in this paper, I will discuss some of them, as well as the questions posed in class. Both of these plays are tragedies, ending with a great number of the featured characters dying, or meeting another terrible fate. First of all, I dont think that Hamlet took place in a godless universe. Of course, the god in Hamlet, vs. the gods in The Bacchae are very different gods. In Hamlet, God affects the decisions the characters make (e.g., Hamlet decides not to kill Claudius while hes praying, because he believes God will forgive Claudius for his sins, and not send him to hell), however he doesnt have a direct role. ...

The Bacchae In the Bacchae, for whom do you feel more sympathy Pentheus or Dionysus? In the Bacchae, Pentheus and Dionysus have very different characters. They are both very complex characters and they both go through changes that alter the way you see them. At the beginning of the play, we are given a very dramatic image of Dionysus at his mothers, Semeles monument. He is wearing a crown of ivy, carrying a thyrsus and wearing a fawn skin. It is a very mysterious and haunting scene. When Dionysus speaks he speaks angrily and passionately - you do not get the impression that he is a very subdued character. In contrast, however, when you first meet Pentheus you see him as a very proud man. He ...

- Aristotles Tragedy - 1,488 words
Aristotle`s Tragedy Defining a Tragedy Greek philosopher Aristotle proposes components of an ideal tragedy in his work, Tragedy and the Emotions of Pity and Fear. According to Aristotle, there are six components of a great tragedy: plot, character, thought, verbal expression, song, and visual adornment. He dissects these components in great detail and provides standards for all of them. In his play Bacchae, Euripides resembles much of Aristotles components of an ideal tragedy. Euripides has only few deviations from the Aristotelian tragedy. To Aristotle, a tragedy is defined as an imitation of action and life, not of an imitation of men. Therefore, he places higher emphasis the role of plot ...

- Dionysianism - 458 words
Dionysianism Dionysianism If you look hard enough, you can see Dionysianism in a lot of places. This is a state of mind where a person does all sorts of wild things. They are very free willed and adventurous. This is the very opposite of the more conservative Apolianistic life style lived by others. In the movie Gimme Shelter we see a lot of this. We see people doing all sorts of free spirited events. Gimme Shelter is a great example of Dionysianism. In this movie they document a concert in San Francisco that is headlined the Rolling Stones. The people at this concert often striped in open site of everyone, and did other acts of craziness. The big controversy about this festival was that the ...

- Dionysusbacchae - 702 words
Dionysus--Bacchae The god, Dionysus, fills an integral role in Grecian Myth. According to Euripides' Bacchae, Dionysus represents the animalistic and mystic life force that connects humanity to its innate earthy roots - roots that are illogical, chaotic, and instinctual. In this paper I will be discussing this aforementioned mystic life force and its existence in ancient Greece's supremely logical society. Being as completely logical as the ancient Greeks tended to be, they needed some sort of release valve that kept them from all going crazy in their otherwise rigid existence. The god, Dionysus, provided this release in their world through the manifestations of "wine, women, and song." With ...

- Role Of Entertainers As Educators - 1,950 words
Role Of Entertainers As Educators Both entertainment and education have been integrals parts of the human experience since the beginnings of time. Many scholars insist that the two institutions often serve jointly, with entertainers and entertainment serving as a main source of education. There is little argument, then, that in addition to generally appealing to the masses, entertainers have regularly fulfilled the role of a teacher to typically unsuspecting audiences. Entertainers have served as educators throughout history, from the origins of oral narratives through the Middle Ages. The earliest forms of unwritten communication were essentially used to spread knowledge from one source to ...

The Powers Above The Powers Above Lana Fourdyce Classic Civilization 115: Section G The Powers Above The relationship between gods and mortals in mythology has long been a complicated topic. The gods can be generous and supportive, and also devastating and destructive to any group of humans. Mortals must respect the powers above them that cannot be controlled. The gods rule over destiny, nature, and justice, and need to be recognized and worshipped for the powerful beings as they are. Regardless of one's actions, intentions, and thoughts, the gods in Greek myth have ultimate power and the final decision of justice over nature, mortals, and even each other. Justice is a very important ruling ...
