Violenza ed emozione comica nel teatro di Aristofane

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

[automatically translated] The article shows the specificity of comic violence, quite different from the epic and the tragic one. With the exception of the farcical scenes of beating and whacking, violence is effectively absent, but left only to the words, death is threatened with grotesque and ridiculous ways, as it shown in the parody of Telephus in the scenes of the threat of killing the little Orestes, in Acharnians and Thesmophoriazusae, with the use of reification. Then, it is Claimed That the absence of violence in comedy scenes is determined by the deliberate will of the poet to exclude from its theater the constituent element of the tragic genre, opposite and complementary to the comic.
