I'm shocked. If there was a real time machine with a chance to see the first showing of one Euripides plays would your reaction be to ask about the internet access?
No, as long as I can be back here in two hours. I have a strict two hour limit for any activity outside the house. And a one activity per day rule also. How long is the play?
2 Hours should sort of suffice, but then plays were in trilogies. Perhaps you could make a special exception? If only for the chance of booing Euripides. Be all like "Yo Euripides, that play is whack, bring Aeschylus back".
Plus then we could blog about it.
As usual on these things, the comments on the article are hiiilllaaarious.
You're right about that. And they don't let up. "As an ardent admirer of your newspaper..." Lolol. There will always be an England! Here's my favorite thus far: "Something similar is noted in the area of Magna Grecia in Southern Italy. But Mrs Setaridou will discover them in a future article." Lol.
Oh aye, Philologists, Linguists, Classicists...whatever we call ourselves, evidentially we know nothing compared to random internet guys #99. Honestly though its a particular problem with Greek, I recall once being asked by a gentleman in Greece if I could cite some useful works on ancient Greek phonology...since he was 100% sure they were wrong. No idea what they were or said etc...just that they were 100% wrong. Naturally.
