P Papinius Statius Thebais

Author: Judith Steiniger
Publisher: Franz Steiner Verlag
ISBN: 3515086838
Release Date: 2005
Genre: History

Mit der Thebais des r�mischen Dichters P. Papinius Statius liegt eine eindrucksvolle Bearbeitung des Themas des Brudermordes vor, das in der Literaturgeschichte durch Aischylos' Drama �Sieben gegen Theben� beruehmt geworden ist. In Statius' zw�lf Buecher umfassendem Epos werden der Kampf der Brueder Eteocles und Polynices um die Vorherrschaft in Theben und ihr Tod dargestellt. Das Werk ist als kuenstlerische Leistung von Bedeutung: Es wurde ueber Jahrhunderte hinweg gesch�tzt und rezipiert, und sp�ter wuerdigte kein Geringerer als Goethe die poetischen Qualit�ten des Dichters. Seit einiger Zeit bemueht man sich um eine neue Beurteilung des kuenstlerischen Gehalts der Thebais. In dieser Arbeit wird ein Teil des Epos, der Katalog der Argiver, kommentiert, in dem geschildert wird, wie sich die �Sieben� versammeln, um gegen Theben zu ziehen. Die Einleitung enth�lt Untersuchungen zur Komposition des Katalogs, zu Motiven und Symbolen sowie zu Sprache und Stil. Dem Kommentar sind der lateinische Text und eine �bersetzung vorangestellt. .
