Excerpt from On Editing Aeschylus: A Criticism It will be admitted that the aim of a serious student should be to ascertain some part of truth; and that if he undertakes to produce general editions of a Greek classic, such as those we are now to consider, his chief business must be really to discover what his author wrote and meant. In the preface to the Seven against Thebes, Dr. Verrall informs his readers that the 'Introduction and explanatory notes are in the main the product of independent work.' The nature of the independent work we shall examine by-and-bye; but we may allow that as a plan of study independent work is admirable enough. Only we have a right to expect the student, before presenting an edition, to have consulted and weighed the views of previous workers in his field. Else we must demand that he shall by his own labour have made himself master at least of all the materials that previous workers brought to bear. To the materials that may serve for elucidation and emendation of Aeschylus a limit could hardly be defined.

The Artistry Of Aeschylus And Zeami

By means of a cross-cultural analysis of selected examples of early Japanese and early Greek drama, Mae Smethurst enhances our appreciation of each form. While using the methods of a classicist to increase our understanding of no as literary texts, she also demonstrates that the fifteenth-century treatises of Zeami--an important playwright, actor, critic, and teacher of no--offer fresh insight into Aeschylus' use of actors, language, and various elements of stage presentation. Relatively little documentation apart from the texts of the plays is available for the Greek theater of the fifth century B.C., but Smethurst uses documentation on no, and evidence from no performances today, to suggest how presentations of the Persians could have been so successful despite the play's lack of dramatic confrontation. Aeschylean theater resembles that of Zeami in creating its powerful emotional and aesthetic effect through a coherent organization of structural elements. Both playwrights used such methods as the gradual intensification of rhythmic and musical effects, an increase in the number and complexity of the actors' movements, and a progressive focusing of attention on the main actors and on costumes, masks, and props during the course of the play. Originally published in 1989. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions.
