To mock foes, is that not the sweetest mockery Athena s cruel words leave Odysseus hesitant in the opening scene of Ajax, one of Sophocles most intense and dramatic plays The powerful Goddess has made the Greek hero Ajax lose his mind and fight herds of cattle instead of men in his delusion To make his shame perfect, she wants Odysseus to see his disgrace When Odysseus refuses, she mocks him, asking provocatively if he is afraid of a madman And the clever Odysseus answers, without hesitation this time Had he been sane, no fear had made me shrink That is a striking thought, and essentially true A Greek hero, however powerful and angry, however dangerous to fight, is a known entity to Odysseus as long as the enemy is sane, and uses the same rules to judge a situation as he would himself A hero with the same physical power, but deprived of vital mental capacities, is a scarily uncertain threat that can not be faced with regular methods.Athena wants to show off her power to punish humans, so she forces Odysseus to watch Ajax in all his boastful delusion He is left reflective I know none nobler and I pity him In his misery, albeit he is my foe, Since he is yoked fast to an evil doom My own lot I regard no less than his For I see well, nought else are we but mere Phantoms, all we t
Psychosis and the Trojan War20 March 2012 On the 9th of March 2012 an American patrol was travelling through Afghanistan when their vehicle was struck by a roadside bomb Of the occupants two were severely injured I believe they lost limbs Two days later, on the 11th March 2012, one of the soldiers that had escaped injury took up an assault rifle, left the camp, and proceeded to slaughter 16 Afghani civilians from two villages This event hit the media like a storm, and as of the writing of this commentary, the soldier is up on charges and has made the statement that he cannot remember anything of the incident itself The question that you may be asking is, what has this got to do with a play written 2500 years ago My answer is quite a lot actually In fact this recent incident in Afghanistan is almost identical to the plot of the Ajax with the exception that the soldier did not kill himself whereas Ajax did When I first picked up this book last night I was thinking that I would just read this play, which I quite like, and comment on it like I have been doing with the other Greek plays that I have read recently However, my mind had already been triggered by some

this series, The Greek Tragedy in New Translations, pairs scholars poets for bangin translations of plays by aeschylus, euripides, sophocles, etc the editors foreword itself got me pretty psyched these guys seem to be really hardcore about their convictions regarding quality translations, i m totally going to check out some others.that said, in this translation pevear steps down from bein all scholarly like lets herbert golder do that work, omg does he ever it s funny because i only picked this out because of pevear, golder s contributions are what really got me i don t even want to say anything about the play cuz hg s so sexy it makes me feel a little dumb, in a way i just might like mmm.but ANYWAY, i guess i have to read the iliad now which is WAY LAME cuz i gots stuff to do, world i think i like sophocles better than aeschylus, tho i should probably read before i make these decisions still a toss up between sophocles euripides.i leave you w this magic from the end s epic shit talking session MENELAOSI saw a man once whose bold talkhad pressed a ship s crew to set sailin winter A storm broke, the wavespiled higher and higher, and hegrew quieter and quieter, huddledin the stern under his cloak The sailorsstepped on him in the confusionand he said nothing at all.So, if a great storm blows upfrom a small cloud, it may silenceyour big voice in the same way.TEUKROSI, too, saw a man once, fullof his own stupidity, who
