Theseus (Hesperus Classics)
'As with most Greek legends, the story is highly tragic. The coupling of this story with a reduced stage version of Oedipus presents a cumulatively tragic picture, dealing with themes common to all literature: lust, selfishness, family life, heroism, and so on. Such themes, particularly those of heroic masculinity, were particularly relevant in the context of the book s first publication in 1946 the period of recovery after the Second World War. It s a short, readable interpretation of a great legend with a helpful introduction, which although tragic, is not overly so. A surprisingly good read.' --Good Books Magazine'Gide's ancients are at once fey and steely, with a dash of anachronism, so that Oedipus preens: 'Some people can t help thinking, every time they come to a crossroads or get caught in a traffic jam, ''should I give way?...'' Whereas I always act as if advised by a god.' Oedipus indeed comes on like a salon pragmatist, whose motto is don t look back too much; equivocal advice in his situation. Andrew Brown's translation is at its best when characters skim knowingly over the mythic waters (Why do you come to bother me with these problems of kinship? If my sons are also my brothers I will simply love them even more). A sadder and wiser Oedipus appears in Gide's final novel, 'Theseus' (1946), when he runs into the roving Theseus at Colonus. Theseus has roamed the world, seduced Amazons and conquered the Minotaur in a rather woozy wrestling bout, and his final words are often taken to represent Gide s own summation of his career: 'For the good of future humanity I have completed my work. I have lived.'' --Plays International Magazine
