    Mass Market Paperback ´ Electra PDF/EPUB ¼ electra kindle, Electra PDFEPUBWildly original and imaginative retelling of the Greek myth of Electra and the Fall of the House of Atreus I feel this version compares favorably with the ancient Greek dramas on this subject and with the Straussvon Hofmannsthal opera Elektra The author has taken the bare bones of the myth and pressed his own stamp upon it He has concentrated on Agamemnon's family left behind in Mycenae I appreciated the author's omitting the details of the Trojan War; I feel it's already covered enough in literature and film Electra as an old woman tells her personal life's story to a Hit

    Mass Market Paperback ´ Electra PDF/EPUB ¼ electra kindle, Electra PDFEPUB Electra has the feel of an epic remarkably even though it is a fairly short book It tells such an epic story and populates it with characters of vivid personality and fallibility shown through judiciously selected scenes of gripping drama Treece wisely doesn’t bother re telling the Iliad a tale that has been retold over and over in modern historical fiction so freuently that I’ve almost got Troy fatigue from the slew of Troy based novels I’ve be

    Mass Market Paperback ´ Electra PDF/EPUB ¼ electra kindle, Electra PDFEPUBThe story of Electra and the unhappy House of Atreus is one of my favorites in all of Greek drama and I wasn't sure if it could be portrayed so vividly outside of Richard Strauss' opera and the original Greek plays But Treece took the standard storytelling techni

    Mass Market Paperback ´ Electra PDF/EPUB ¼ electra kindle, Electra PDFEPUBIf you’ve ever watched some of the classic Greek plays particularly those surrounding the Trojan War some of it may have been slightly confusing The dramatists assumed that most of the viewers knew the names of the characters and had a rough idea of the events The plays were to put those events in perspective or serve as a warning for future generations The Amber Princess is a retelling of those events in novel form It may not clarify all the details for you and you may not even agree with Henry Treece’s interpretations of said events but this is a gritty treatment of the story from the perspective of Electra daughter of Agamemnon and Clytem

    Mass Market Paperback ´ Electra PDF/EPUB ¼ electra kindle, Electra PDFEPUBMore lesbianism and ritual prostitution than delicate stomachs are likely to accommodate promises the review uote blazoned across the front cover but this is a 1963 edition and to sensibilities forged after the beginning of sexual intercourse it's a book you'd call haunting strange sensual but hardly filthy Treece gives Electra's own account of the Atreides' bloody end taking Robert Graves' lead in unearthing older myths within the classical versions we know He then matches that with what histo

    Mass Market Paperback ´ Electra PDF/EPUB ¼ electra kindle, Electra PDFEPUBAn old woman tells her story to a Hittite doctor in Dorian Dark Age Greece She claims to be Electra daughter of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra the last great Achaean rulers of Mycene Here at the close of the Greek Bronze Age are portraits of Helen and Paris Odysseus and Achilles Iphigeneia and Orestes Electra and Pylades all as they might have been in reality Treece writes an imaginative darkly violent tale set convincingly in a richly described Greece culminating with the overthrow of Mycenaean civilisation by the brutal illiterate but pragmatic Dorians

    Mass Market Paperback ´ Electra PDF/EPUB ¼ electra kindle, Electra PDFEPUBAfter a recent foray into nonfiction about the late Bronze Age and the fall of civilizations I went back to this novel which I read many many years ago and which I still remembered in pieces It's well written apparently Treece was a bit of a poet as well as a novelist but I think his shtick was to turn myth into history he does this w

    Mass Market Paperback ´ Electra PDF/EPUB ¼ electra kindle, Electra PDFEPUBGrimly compelling; the story of Electra told by herself She recalls the horror of the sacrifice of her sister Iphigenia her mother Clytemnestra's revenge upon Agamemnon for allowing the killing of his own child the madness of her brother Orestes; the fall of Mycenae and the coming of the Dorians She recalls the gentle eunuch slave who loved her and her love of the man she marries A princess becomes a ueen but ends in obscurity betrayed by her surviving sister branded as a subject and a thrall by Mycenae's conuerors
