Dec 31, Chris Fellows rated it it was amazing. From time to time I may have complained about certain trends in modern culture — or perhaps, I have just silently fumed about them in my own head. The narrative arc would be incredibly annoying to anyone who went along expecting to lanerinto a serious treatment of a Greek myth; but it relies on the laherinto being thoroughly familiar with the myth being messed with.
It starts in full dramatic Greek tragedy mode, as befits such a tale, with treachery and betrayal and baroque imagery and fountains of offstage blood, but this dw of Scylla and Minos is drained of all its fantastic elements, like it would be if it was related by a modern novelist treating this myth as a labsrinto novel, and its resolution is left completely up in the air. Instead, she is simply never mentioned again. Next, a messenger come bringing the news that while Minos has been off fighting the Athenians, his wife has gotten herself knocked up by a bull and has given birth to a hideous monster.
Everyone is quite sure the bull was Zeus in disguise, the messenger reports, but it is clear that Minos goes along with this story not because he believes it, but because the alternative is just too shameful. Two things are omitted from this story and never mentioned, which every theatregoer would be expecting to come up: And the things that are left out continue to be the more fantastic ones, while the new elements are designed for the amusement of a modern audience.
Theseus has a comic servant sidekick, who almost from the beginning forgets he is lkpe to be Athenian, making comments about his home province in Spain and making allusions to current Spanish fashion.
The Gods cretta appear in person, or do anything miraculous after the appearance of the Minotaur, and just like in a modern work of pseudo-historical fiction probably do not actually exist.
Another peasant woman, Doriclea, also flirts with Montano, but ends up getting together with Phineus. Meanwhile, Minos and Oranteo have both set out to get the two sisters back from Theseus well, Minos has set out, Oranteo has stayed home and issued press releases and at the end all the characters are reunited on a beach in Lesbos and after some sit-com worthy confrontations and revelations sort things out and make nice.
The fate of Scylla is left out. There are no vengeful Goddesses descending to wreak havoc on pretty mortals, just Ariadne pretending to be Montano pretending to be a statue of Minerva to select the King and Queen of the May. This has a few places where lines are misattributed, but it is much better than the Kindle version I tried, where whole slabs of the play were formatted so that you couldn’t tell who was saying what.
