    Φιλοκτήτης MOBI ↠ Paperback Φιλοκτήτης download, Φιλοκτήτης PDFEPUBThis dude's foot is fucking gross He wounded it on the way to the Trojan War he's like a low rent Achilles right That guy's one vulnerability was his heel and he got hit in it and died; Philoktetes gets the same wound but in his case it just gets infected So here he is all screaming in agony plus it smells awful and it's oozing pus and the whole thing is just really unpleasant so here's what ol' wily Odysseus does with him he just fuckin' dumps him on a deserted island and sails off Seriously He leaves him a bow I mean it's a magic bow from Herakles so that's nice butnot as nice as like not abandoning his wounded comrade on an island because his pain was bumming everyone out Odysseus is a dickAs the play opens it's ten years later and suddenly Odysseus needs his magic bow it turns out it's the only thing that can finally win the Trojan

    Φιλοκτήτης MOBI ↠ Paperback Φιλοκτήτης download, Φιλοκτήτης PDFEPUBOne of the flagship texts to demonstrate Hegelian theory of tragedy The Greeks had marooned Philoktetes early on because “his foot diseased and eaten away with running ulcers” offended them with its malodorous decay which is of course the dumbest reason ever to shipwreck a guy who was injured in the Trojan War As it turned out both P and his heraclean bow were reuired at Troy prophecy of Helenus yo so Odysseus’ object is to re kidnap P for the war effort When O and son of Achilles Neoptolemus arrive P is still as yet injured however many years later as evident in the “oozing matter from a sore” that they find Chorus notes that P has a “maggot ridden foot” which is suggestive of gangrene; how is P not dead Surely some sort of miracleO

    Φιλοκτήτης MOBI ↠ Paperback Φιλοκτήτης download, Φιλοκτήτης PDFEPUBAfter a foot injury on the way to Troy Philoctetes is unceremoniously stranded on a deserted island just so his fellow Greeks don't have to deal with the fetid smell or his pained whining After consulting a seer Odysseus admits he did a whoopsie by abandoning his comrade as they need Philoctetes' bow gifted by Hercules to win the Trojan war so he and Neoptolemus son of Achilles sail to the island to steal the bow by any means necessaryFor all I bang on about the Greco Roman God's being unfeeling bastards the Ancient Greeks apparently pay homage by trying to surpass them in that sheer bastardry Odysseus is an utter monster and coward in thisHaving reached the island and well aware Philoctetes wants to turn his bollocks into a necklace Odysseus has Neoptolemus speak to the archer instead and convince him through lies to relinuish the bow This is apparently an example of Odysseus' cunning and not because he's completely spinelessNeoptolemus manages to ingraitiate himself

    Φιλοκτήτης MOBI ↠ Paperback Φιλοκτήτης download, Φιλοκτήτης PDFEPUBDespite most critics' bewilderment at the fact that this play has a happy conclusion I found it moving than any other Greek tragedy I've read The poignancy of the man who's not just rejected and isolated by everyone because of an illness but who is humbly aware himself of the repugnance of this illness is hard to put into words The moment when the men who had betrayed his trust turn around to leave Philoctetes and his reaction is a simple penetrating Friends is absolutely heartrending Dramatically tight and balanced it reads like a robust Greek The Tempest and its culmination in a promised healing of this terrible wound is only fitting I think
