              Greek and Roman Classics in the British Struggle for Social Reform
               

              Greek and Roman Classics in the British Struggle for Social Reform (Hardback)

              Greek and Roman Classics in the British Struggle for Social Change presents an original and carefully argued case for the importance of classical ideas, education and self-education in the personal development and activities of British social reformers in the 19th and first six d...ecades of the 20th century. Usually drawn from the lower echelons of the middle class and the most aspirational artisanal and working-class circles, the prominent reformers, revolutionaries, feminists and educationalists of this era, far from regarding education in Latin and Greek as the preserve of the upper classes and inherently reactionary, were consistently inspired by the Mediterranean Classics and contested the monopoly on access to them often claimed by the wealthy and aristocratic elite. The essays, several of which draw on previously neglected and unpublished sources, cover literary figures (Coleridge, the 'Cockney Classicist' poets including Keats, and Dickens), different cultural media (burlesque theatre, body-building, banner art, poetry, journalism and fiction), topics in social reform (the desirability of revolution, suffrage, poverty, social exclusion, women's rights, healthcare, eugenics, town planning, race relations and workers' education), as well as political affiliations and agencies (Chartists, Trade Unions, the WEA, political parties including the Fabians, the Communist Party of Great Britain and the Labour Party). The sixteen essays in this volume restore to the history of British Classics some of the subject's ideological complexity and instrumentality in social progress, a past which is badly needed in the current debates over the future of the discipline. Contributors include specialists in English Literature, History, Classics, and Art.

              a ~Criticism, it seems to me, can without discredit begin with whata (TM)s in the poeta (TM)s head, without inquiring how it got there.a (TM) Why did Aeschylus characterize differently from Sophocles? Why did Sophocles introduce the third actor? Why did Euripides not make better ...plots? So asks H.D.F Kitto in his acclaimed study of Greek tragedy, first published in 1936 and available for the first time in Routledge Classics. Kitto argues that in spite of dealing with big moral and intellectual questions, the Greek dramatist is above all an artist and the key to understanding classical Greek drama is to try and understand the tragic conception of each play. In Kittoa (TM)s words a ~ We shall ask what the dramatist is striving to say, not what in fact he does say about this or that.a (TM) Through a fascinating analysis of Aeschylusa (TM)s a ~Oresteiaa (TM), the plays of Sophocles including a ~Antigonea (TM) and a ~Oedipus Tyrannusa (TM); and Euripidesa (TM)s a ~Medeaa (TM) and a ~Hecubaa (TM), Kitto skilfully conveys the artistic and literary brilliance of the Greek dramatists and explains why classical Greek tragedy has the power to grip the reader today as when the plays were first written and performed. This Routledge Classics edition includes a new foreword by Edith Hall.
