ZECCHIN DE FASANO, Graciela. The temporality of the Thrênos: the Muse’s Lament in Rhesus (890-982). Nova tellus [online]. 2022, vol.40, n.1, pp.35-50.  Epub Apr 08, 2022. ISSN 0185-3058.

The scene of the Muse’s Lament in the exodus of the polemic tragedy Rhesus stands out for its compositional features. In this article I analyse verses 890-982 and its thrênos, as a kind of a singular poetry in terms of its type and function, and the controversial reading of those textual models postulated as underlying, with special attention to its temporality. In this way, I attempt to show there is a compositional matrix of the funeral lament reformulated and reworked significantly new.

Keywords : Thrênos; Muse; Pseudo-Euripides; Rhesus.
