The Aeginetans, also, professing to be ill-used and treated with violence, made supplications in private to the Lacedaemonians for redress, though not daring openly to call the Athenians in question. But in other things he did not comply with the giddy impulses of the citizens, nor quit his own resolutions to follow their fancies, when, carried away with the thought of their strength and great success, they were eager to interfere again in Egypt, and to disturb the King of Persia's maritime dominions. Tragic occurrences seem unconnected and unrelated and at times nonsensical. At length, coming to a final contest with Thucydides which of the two should ostracism the other out of the country, and having gone through this peril, he threw his antagonist out, and broke up the confederacy that had been organized against him. And to pull it all together, we have the figure of Gower, most of whose monologues merely repeat the plot of scenes just past, or narrate events that take place offstage.

In the same winter the Athenians gave a funeral at the public cost to those who had first fallen in this war. In the meantime, also, the city Potidaea, under the dominion of the Athenians, but a colony formerly of the Corinthians, had revolted, and was beset with a formal siege, and was a further occasion of precipitating the war. Funerals after such battles were public rituals and Pericles used the occasion to make a classic statement of the value of democracy. Pericles and Ephialtes took away the noble's powers. Now he, being admitted to friendship with Pericles, and a great favourite of his, had many enemies upon this account, who envied and maligned him; who also, to make trial in a case of his, what kind of judges the commons would prove, should there be occasion to bring Pericles himself before them, having tampered with Menon, one who had been a workman with Phidias, stationed him in the market-place, with a petition desiring public security upon his discovery and impeachment of Phidias. The 14 years of peace that followed gave Pericles a chance to develop the splendor of Athens.

For there is justice in the claim that steadfastness in his country's battles should be as a cloak to cover a man's other imperfections; since the good action has blotted out the bad, and his merit as a citizen more than outweighed his demerits as an individual. On the other hand, if I must say anything on the subject of female excellence to those of you who will now be in widowhood, it will be all comprised in this brief exhortation. And the position of the hand which holds out the spear in front of the face, was ingeniously contrived to conceal in some degree the likeness, which meantime showed itself on either side. No point is made about virtue except that one should have it. Ephialtes was later assassinated. The greatness of Athens[ edit ] "If we look to the laws, they afford equal justice to all in their private differences

The symbolism, although ambiguousis most likely to be unfavourable. In the brothel in Mytilene, Marina's main goal is to prove that she is above those who run the brothel, and she wants only to improve her lot.

And this is the reason, they say, that people, when at any time they have been merry, and enjoyed themselves, called it white day, in allusion to this white bean.

Damon, it is not unlikely, being a sophist, out of policy sheltered Pericles book under the profession of music to conceal from people in general his skill in other things, and under this pretence attended Pericles, the young athlete of politics, so to say, as his training-master in these exercises.

You, their survivors, must determine to have as unfaltering a resolution in the field, though you may pray that it may have a happier outcome.

And to pull it all together, we have the figure of Gower, most of whose monologues merely repeat the plot of scenes just past, or narrate events that take place offstage. Nevertheless, Thucydides was extremely meticulous in his documentation, and records the varied certainty of his sources each time.

In the meantime, also, the city Potidaea, under the dominion of the Athenians, but a colony formerly of the Corinthians, had revolted, and was beset with a formal siege, and was a further occasion of precipitating the war. One explanation for this may be the oft-mentioned claims that the authors shift after scene 9.

The propylaea, or entrances to the Acropolis, were finished in five years' time, Mnesicles being the principal architect.

Instead, she is kidnapped by pirates and sold to a brothel, where she earns her keep by singing and doing needlework. Analysis Summary Analysis Pericles is something of a messy play--the plot is repetitive and silly at times, the characters lack depth, the presentation of a "chorus" figure is old-fashioned and undramatic.

He left the Sinopians thirteen ships of war, with soldiers under the command of Lamachus, to assist them against Timesileus the tyrant; and when he and his accomplices had been thrown out, obtained a decree that six hundred of the Athenians that were willing should sail to Sinope and plant themselves there with the Sinopians, sharing among them the houses and land which the tyrant and his party had previously held.

And some historians, in which number is Theophrastus the philosopher, have given it as a truth that Pericles every year used to send privately the sum of ten talents to Sparta, with which he complimented those in office, to keep off the war; not to purchase peace neither, but time, that he might prepare at leisure, and be the better able to carry on war hereafter.Pericles Funeral Oration in Depth: A reconstruction of Pericles' house from The Greeks documentary Inshortly after the Peloponnesian War had broken out, Pericles delivered his famous Funeral.
