Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about one of the dramas of Euripides: Iphigenia in Tauris. It deals specifically with the lines 392-455 of the drama. In the First Stasimon of I. T., in several places controversial as to text and/or metre, the Chorus speculate about the identity and motivation of the Greeks whose arrival and arrest have been reported. They begin by apostrophizing in mythical terms the 'Bosporos' through which these Greeks must have passed on their way to the Taurian land. That sundering strait between Europe and Asia, variously 'cyan, dark' and with associated 'clashing rocks', is a recurrent theme in this play.

Keywords: Iphigenia in Tauris; Asia; Bosporos; Euripides; Europe; Greeks
