Sample text

Few episodes in world theater can rival the emotional impact of the scenes in which the infant is torn from his mother Andromache’s arms, and later laid out by his heartbroken grandmother, a tiny corpse on his dead father Hector’s shield (709–98, 1118–251). 4–6). This is evidence that the ancient Greeks appreciated the emotive power of this play. It also helps to explain the player scenes in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, initiated by the arrival of the ‘‘tragedians of the city’’ to offer their Lenten entertainment.

Claudius, like Alexander of Pherae, subsequently watches in the course of Hamlet Act 3 scene 2 a play dramatizing actions so similar to crimes he has himself committed that he has to absent himself from the performance. The point of this discussion of the enduring cultural impact of Euripides’ Trojan Women is partly to offer a specific example of how ancient tragedies can shape the subsequent tragic tradition in ways that are invisible and yet of enormous significance. Shakespeare had almost certainly never read in ancient Greek the Trojan Women that lay behind Plutarch’s influential anecdote, and no English translation became available until the eighteenth century.

But such violence calls for a novel and a complex aesthetic: Lacking strength, Beauty hates the Understanding for asking of her what she cannot do. But the life of the Spirit is not the life that shrinks from death and keeps itself untouched by devastation, but rather the life that endures it and maintains itself in it. It wins its truth only when, in utter dismemberment, it finds itself. (quoted in Zˇizˇek 1999: 30–1) This, surely, describes the terrible spiritual beauty of tragedy, and we may now recognize in the Hegelian ‘‘night of the world’’ both the primordial chaos of experience and the primordial violence of thought which is the origin of all authentic action and civilization but which first disrupts and disorders experience again.
