ἐξ ἐρίων δὴ καὶ κλωστήρων καὶ ἀτράκτων

This essay examines that metaphor in the context of the political and war situation at the time Lysistrata was first performed. It considers traditional gender roles in the fifth-century Greek polis and Lysistrata’s inversion of those roles in her weaving analogy. Aristophanes’ comedic purpose in the weaving speech, in Lysistrata as a whole, and more generally across his corpus is examined. In addition, some observations are made about the sound pattern of Lysistrata’s speech and, in a personal argument, a speculative suggestion is advanced that the audience might have associated her cadences with the familiar rhythms of a domestic weaving loom.

ἐξ ἐρίων δὴ καὶ κλωστήρων καὶ ἀτράκτων

Theatricality, didacticism, prosaic verse, use of persons as symbols, contemplative mood, flashbacks are some of Cavafy’s recurring ‘tropes’. Discuss.

Within the vast poetry collection of Constantine Cavafy, arguably, a pattern of recurring tropes emerges, offering the readers an in depth understanding of what defines his artistry. The poems that I have chosen for this essay being Young Men of Sidon, Alexandrian Kings and Kaisarion, from his book The Collected poems. One might say that they serve as an example of Cavafy’s gravitation towards an array of literary devices such as theatricality, didacticism, prosaic verse, use of persons as symbols, contemplative mood and flashbacks, one might say that they create a narrative that extends beyond the individual poems, inviting us to explore the timeless themes captured by Cavafy.

How does Seferis’ mythical method interact with Greece’s lasting socio-political issues?

Seferis uses the mythical method in his poetry to allude to and comment upon social and political issues in Greece in his lifetime. Before discussing his poetry, it is important to define what is meant by Seferis’ mythical method. This method can be described as allusive, as although Seferis does make direct references to myth he does so in inventive ways, for example by using narrative space, symbols and characters to evoke Greek myths.

The form of Dramatic Monologue as perfected by Ritsos’ poetry.

Yannis Ritsos is widely regarded as one of the most significant figures in contemporary Greek poetry. He managed to revolutionise the idea of a dramatic monologue and create not just beautiful poetry, but also a multifaceted art form that has depth on psychological, social, and philosophical levels throughout all of his publications. The dramatic monologue form was popularised by Victorian poets such as Robert Browning, but Ritsos revitalised it and many poets to this day still use his style as inspiration. His ability to construct identities and characters that the reader can genuinely sense and almost experience is skilful.

In Ritsos’ Moonlight Sonata what sentiments does the woman’s confession provoke/inspire to you and how these compare to the ones felt by the young man who remains silent throughout her long monologue.

Yannis Ritsos' "Moonlight Sonata" is a poignant and emotionally charged poem that presents a deeply intimate monologue of a woman speaking to a silent young man. The setting is night, with the moonlight casting a dreamlike atmosphere over the scene. The woman's confession, filled with personal revelations, memories, and emotions, evokes a variety of sentiments in the reader and provokes a complex response.

Ελληνική αργκό

makrodimos writes, "Αγαπητοί συνάδερφοι,
θα θέλαμε να σας ενημερώσουμε ότι εκδόθηκε και κυκλοφορεί το "Λεξικό της αργκό". Είμαστε κι οι δυο αποσπασμένοι στην Ουγγαρία και το γράψαμε για να βοηθήσουμε τους ενήλικους μαθητές μας να κατανοήσουν ένα κομμάτι της ελληνικής γλώσσας που δεν παρουσιάζεται επαρκώς στα διδακτικά εγχειρίδια, βρίσκεται όμως μπροστά τους στον καθημερινό προφορικό λόγο, στην τηλεόραση, στα περιοδικά, στα τραγούδια.

Ιστορία και λογοτεχνία

sissiatha writes, "Σίσσυ Αθανασοπούλου

Η παρουσίαση του βιβλίου της Φλώρας Μόλχο “Γυναίκες και άνδρες της Ελλάδας”, αποτελεί κατά κάποιον τρόπο συνέχεια της παρουσίασης μιας εκδήλωσης που οργανώθηκε τον περασμένο Μάρτιο στη Νάπολη με τίτλο “η λογοτεχνία διηγείται την ιστορία”. Η ανάγκη συνδυασμού της διδασκαλίας λογοτεχνίας και ιστορίας, προέκυψε στα τμήματα ενηλίκων, στα οποία διδάσκω εκτός από το πανεπιστήμιο, και το συγκεκριμένο βιβλίο στάθηκε πολύτιμο εργαλείο για τα μαθήματα αυτά.

Με την ευκαιρία εύχομαι σε όλες και όλους: καλή σχολική χρονιά.
