Alcesti: sacrificio e resurrezione
Elementi di un mito con sei variazioni
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
Starting out from Alcestis by Euripides, and from some modern revisitations (Quinault, Händel, Martello, Gluck, Alfieri, Hughes), two aspects of myth are investigated in this study: the possibility of eluding death by means of a replacement victim and the manner of resurrection. In relation to the theatre stage, the analysis focuses on the different way in which the search for a replacement to destine to Hades is positioned temporally in drama and the level of information possessed by the different characters with respect to the possibility of saving Admetus (who at times presides directly over the procurement of the sacrificial substitute, but at times appears unaware of the on-going events). Secondly, attention is directed to the manner of Alcestis’ resurrection, her recognition by Admetus and the ‘miraculous’, indeed fable-like character of her return to life.
