In and Out of the Mind - Greek Images of the Tragic Self

Author(s): Ruth Padel

Greek Literature | Ancient History | Philosophy

Ruth Padel explores Greek conceptions of human innerness and the way in which Greek tragedy shaped European notions of mind and self. Arguing that Greek poetic language connects images of consciousness, even male consciousness, with the darkness attributed to Hades and to women, Padel analyzes tragedy's biological and daemonological metaphors for what is within.
