The City Dionysia -
Acropolis ("the high part of the city")
Cothurnus (Buskin) heavy sandals that were wor n in Tragedies
Choregos - responsible for organi zing and paying for a public spectacle (play)
Liturgy
scenes portrayed on stage were mythical, they could act out scenes that would not
happen in normal life, playwrights could stage characters that did things that good
patriotic Greek citizens would not ever do, characters are put in crazy dilemmas,
individual vs. collective
Dionysius - madness and wine, satyrs follow him, god of t heatre, fertility and
sexuality, associated with foreigners, not like t he typical good athenian,
Oedipus the king - Apollo, prophecy, Delphic Oracle, pithya,
problems understanding t he oracle at delphi, misinterpretation, if you understand
them correctly and then try and prove it wrong, gods are never wrong,
nothing in excess, know yourself - two inscriptions at delphi,
Oedipus the King = Oedipus Rex (Latin) = O edipus Tyrannus (Greek)
probably per formed around the 430's 440's
oedipus means swollen feet,
Laius, Jocasta, Polybus, Merope, Sphinx
Sphinx's riddle
plague on thebes because of blood guilt (miasma), first to know what oedipus has
done is the blind prophet,
knowledge and info is given slowly, oedipus learns the truth very slowly,
theme of knowledge in the play -
