Book Excerpt: 
. . .And tell me by what miracle thou sprang'st
From race so savage.


Atreus' eldest son
Was Agamemnon; he, O king, my sire:
But I may say with truth, that, from a child,
In him the model of a perfect man
I witness'd ever. Clytemnestra bore
To him, myself, the firstling of their love,
Electra then. Peaceful the monarch rul'd,
And to the house of Tantalus was given
A long-withheld repose. A son alone
Was wanting to complete my parent's bliss;
Scarce was this wish fulfill'd, and young Orestes,
The household's darling, with his sisters grew,
When new misfortunes vex'd our ancient house.
To you hath come the rumour of the war,
Which, to avenge the fairest woman's wrongs,
The force united of the Grecian kings
Round Ilion's walls encamp'd. Whether the town
Was humbl'd, and achiev'd their great revenge
I have not heard. . . . Read More

Well the book was not as bad at I had thought at first but it it is just really... boring. Everything just seems so obvious and it really lacks tension.

Ich denke, mir hätte Iphigenie ganz gut gefallen können, ja, wenn nicht zwei Faktoren das Ganze beeinflusst hätten - das eine war mein Deutschunterricht, der das Buch leider totinterpretiert und mir damit die Freude geraubt hat. Ich gebe zu: Der gute Goethe kann dafür nichts. Für den zweiten Punkt h


"En la juventud primera, cuando mi alma comenzaba apenas a vincularse a mis padres, a mi familia ..., una maldición inconcebible, ¡ay! se dejó caer sobre mí, me arrancó a las prendas de mi amor y con mano de hierro rompió los dulces lazos. Así desapareció la alegría en m

Iphigenie auf Tauris
By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (composed in 1779)

“Iphigenia auf Tauris” is a play in a distant orbit around the Iliad.

The reader of the” Iliad” will remember that Iphigenia was sacrificed by her father Agamemnon to appease Diana, the goddess, to obtain favorable winds to carry the

It is widely known that this book is difficult to understand. Various moral goods, personal integrity, responsibility, etc., all of which can be treated wonderfully in this book, and the appendix, with its historical, biographical, production-describing, and prescription aesthetic aspects, is certai

Vor der Rezension: In Klassik Edition stelle ich euch Rezensionen zu etwas anderen Büchern vor. Bücher, die ich vielleicht im Zuge der Uni gelesen habe, vielleicht auch ein bisschen out-of-comfort privat und die eine Rezension wert sind. Ich spreche von Büchern, die viele unter euch als ner

Iphigenie auf Tauris = ‎Iphigenia in Tauris‬, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Iphigenia in Tauris (German: Iphigenie auf Tauris) is a reworking by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe of the ancient Greek tragedy (Iphigeneia en Taurois) by Euripides. Euripides' title means "Iphigenia among the Taurians", whereas Go

I doubt that those 1* ratings come from people who actually finished it. So,the idea is: Don't rate anything you can't finish

مهمترین نکته: ظاهرا این ترجمه ناکامل است. نسخه ای که من در اختیار داشتم و هیچ کم و کسر ظاهری نداشت - یعنی شماره ی صفحات کامل بود - چند صحنه متوالی از نمایشنامه را نداشت. در صفحه ی شصت کتاب، مجلس سوم پرده ی سوم آغاز می شوداما در واقع این بخش مجلس سوم پرده ی چهارم است. یعنی مجلس سوم از پرده ی سوم و مج

'Must gentle woman quite forego her nature,—
Force against force employ,—like Amazons,
Usurp the sword from man, and bloodily
Revenge oppression?

After willingly sacrificing herself for the favorable auspices of the Greek fleet at Aulis, Iphigenia was transported to Tauris by the goddess Artemis at the
