    The past in Aeschylus and Sophocles
    English | ISBN: 3110257521 | 2011 | 512 pages | PDF | 1,6 MB

    The book studies the past of the characters in Aeschylus and Sophocles, a neglected but crucial topic. The charactersA? beliefs, values, and emotions bear on their view of the past. This view reinforces their beliefs and their conception of themselves and others as agents of free will and members of a family and/or community. The study reveals that, although the charactersA? idea of the past is fixed, the impact of the past is not. The characters consider, review, and construct narratives of it, as they seek to mould a future they perceive as morally just for themselves and others.
