    ePUB Robert Icke ´ Oresteia eBook · ´ oresteia pdf, Oresteia Kindle45 starsThe opening section of Icke's Oresteia is one of the best to any play I've ever read It's an adaptation of the oft forgotten Iphigenia in Aulis where war general Agamemnon learns that he has to sacrifice his beloved eldest daughter in order to save thousands of Greek lives In classic renderings Iphigenia is a teenager who eventually bravely decides that her life must be sacrificed In Icke's rendering she is an adorable seven year old who trusts her parents implicitly The flair and imagination with which Icke shifts the action from Ancient Greece to modern day chic glassy London is breathtaking His Clytemnestra is a both terrifying and wonderfu

    ePUB Robert Icke ´ Oresteia eBook · ´ oresteia pdf, Oresteia KindleThis play is 128 pages and while I don't know how long this would take to perform the play itself feels like extreme concentrate Like bottoms up drinking lemon juice straight no water Every line counts There are no throwaway moments and if you are very likely familiar with Aeschylus' original Oresteia there isn't a single relaxed moment Everything matters because you know what will happen next You just don't know how

    ePUB Robert Icke ´ Oresteia eBook · ´ oresteia pdf, Oresteia KindleOne of if not the best adaption I've read of the Oresteia THIS is how you modernize an ancient play a popular trend as of late yet one which rarely pulls it off I'm sure the time period is evident while actually watching it performed but when reading it I was able to imagine the story still taking place in ancient times as easily as I could modern which is a masterful feat in itself When you're a fan of the source material that's what you want to be reading of which is often why adaptions that try to be too modern changing a multitude of places and people in the process fall flat with me This version however hit the sweet spot in that regardThe characterizations in this adaption was my favorite thing about it I feel like Icke is one of the few authors who really understood the nuance and complexity of Agamemnon's situation in Iphigenia in Aulis because he does a great job of making him a sympathetic character while still making him uite flawed I especially loved the elaboration

    ePUB Robert Icke ´ Oresteia eBook · ´ oresteia pdf, Oresteia KindleWOMAN She’s goneDo you feel alright?AGAMEMNONI feel like I’ve done something so wrong that my whole life my family nothing will be able to—the worst mistake The worst mistake I got it wrong It was wrong It was wrong —Some of the most INCREDIBLE writing I’ve read in any play ever even without considering the sheer brilliance of the adaptation itself Icke’s choices are heartbreakingly perfect; the focus on Agamemnon himself and his thoughts on the eventual sacrifice of Iphigenia is such a major deviation from the original work and yet now any adaptation without that initial focus will without a doubt feel like its lacking something to me I can’t stop thinking about the repetition of specific phrases all throughout specifically “She was dead from the beginning” and how it doesn’t JUST apply to Iphigenia All versions of The Oresteia are obviously about the cycles of abuse but I doubt any adaptation or translation hammers it ho

    ePUB Robert Icke ´ Oresteia eBook · ´ oresteia pdf, Oresteia KindleI was worried it was just going to be one long procession of inevitable deaths but Almeida Theatre's Oresteia is an oddly affecting thriller What I loved was that despite reading a Wikipedia synopsis it was adapted in such a way that there were loads of twists and turns I don't mind liberties being taken with texts although some audiences members were grumbling that
