The Mask of Comedy: Class, Gender, and Resistance - PDF | ePUB | PDB | Audio books | Kindle
A choral interlude distinctive to Greek Old Comedy the parabasis treats a variety of literary and political topics that critics have generally considered tangential to the themes of the play in which it appears Reading closely each of Aristophanes comedies Thomas K Hubbard here demonstrates that far from being a digression or a relic of long forgotten rituals the parabasis provides a critical link between the identities of the poet chorus and protagonist and between the play and its audience br br The parabasis according to Hubbard offers an interesting theoretical problem the seeming intrusion of autobiographical allusion and literary dogma into the poetic text He argues that the parabasis is not in fact intrusive but presents the poet s role and identity as a paradigm for the satirical concerns of the play After a review of ancient theories of the comic and their modern counterparts Hubbard examines the parabasis within the framework of Greek traditions of poetic self awareness and self citation br br He shows that the function of the parabasis is primarily intertextual echoing not only other poets but also the comic poet himself Hubbard maintains that the parabases of Aristophanes plays taken together form an important autobiographical subtext which allows readers to trace the poet s career as he wished it to be seen The poet in his various struggles with Athenian society is himself revealed to be a comic hero on a par with many of his protagonists br br Analyzing Aristophanes plays sequentially through the lens of the parabasis The Mask of Comedy gives us a new perspective on the significance of his entire dramatic corpus It will be welcomed by classicists and by comparatists and literary theorists interested in the development of comedy The Mask of Comedy: Class, Gender, and Resistance books by Thomas K.
