One of the greatest of the classical Greek dramas, based on the Greek legend of the Titan demi-god who, against the will of Zeus, stole fire from the gods for the benefit of man. His terrible punishment by Zeus, and his continuing defiance of Zeus in the face of that punishment, remain universal symbols of man's vulnerability in any struggle with the gods

Marxism and poetry by George Thomson( Book )

47 editions published between 1945 and 1996 in 7 languages and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Al llegar la revolución industrial, la poesía se convirtió en una mercancía; y el poeta en productor para un mercado abierto en el que había una demanda cada vez menor de sus productos. El capitalismo ha dejado de ser una fuerza progresiva; la burguesía ha dejado de ser una clase progresista; y es así que la cultura burguesa, incluyendo la posía, está perdiendo su vitalidad. La poesía contemporánea no es el producto de la clase gobernante, sino de un sector pequeño y aislado de la comunidad, la "inteligentsia" de la clase media. Y así, la poesía burguesa ha perdido contacto con las fuerzas capace de provocar un cambio social. Su alcance es cada vez menor. No es ya el producto de un pueblo o de una clase, sino de un grupo. A menos que el poeta burgués aprenda a orientar su arte, sólo escribirá para sí

The Oresteia by Aeschylus( Book )

13 editions published between 1938 and 2004 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The three plays of the Oresteia portray the bloody events that follow the victorious return of King Agamemnon from the Trojan War, at the start of which he had sacrificed his daughter Iphigeneia to secure divine favor. After Iphigeneia's mother, Clytemnestra, kills her husband in revenge, she in turn is murdered by their son Orestes with his sister Electra's encouragement. Orestes is pursued by the Furies and put on trial, his fate decided by the goddess Athena. Far more than the story of murder and vengeance in the royal house of Atteus, the Oresteia serves as a dramatic parable of the evolution of justice and civilization that is still powerful after 2,500 years."--Jacket
