s adaption Euripides #Iphigenia In Tauris Is #in Tauris is opposed to the original in several key areas Goethe at least establishes the same mood as he rigorously follows the closed dramatic form prescribed by Aristotle s which includes unity of time and space However while Euripides describes how two members of the family of Atreus are driven from crisis by an implacable fate Goethe shows us Iphigenia making a courageous stand that will put an end to the fatal cycle of murder and retribution Euripides resorts to a Deus ex Machina to bring an end his drama whereas Goethe uses a decisive dialogue between Iphigenia and Thoas the King of Tauris which resolves the the outstanding issues Goethe Euripides Iphigenia is a psychological victim of a family struggle which has seen her mother kill her father only to be killed in turn by Iphigenia s brother Goethe s Iphigenia represents the ideal person according to the norms of Weimer classicism in that she is a harmony between duty and desireGoethe s Iphigenia is a highly polished work that he worked on in fits and starts for almost ten years whereas Euripides play has the appearance of having been done in haste Nonetheless to properly appreciate Goethe s work it is absolutely necessary to read Euripide s version first I think the story could be really good but I really don t understand ANYTHING Well the book was not as bad at I had thought at first but it it is ust really boring Everything ust seems so obvious and it really lacks tension Iphigenie auf TaurisBy Johann Wolfgang von Goethe composed in 1779 Iphigenia auf Tauris is a play in a distant orbit around the IliadThe reader of the Iliad will remember that Iphigenia was sacrificed by hergoethe s adaption
