Il sogno delle Erinni (ricordando Ezio Pellizer)

Carlo Brillante


This essay has been written in honour of Ezio Pellizer, whose main interests are dealt with in the first part. As for the title this study examines two dramatic presentations concerning dreams: the prologue of Euripides' Hecuba and the appearance in dream of Clytaemestra in Aeschylus' Eumenides. In the Euripidean tragedy Hecuba's words show that she knows the message of Polydorus, who appeared to her as a dream. This tragedy has an important precedent in Aeschylus' Eumenides, where Clytaemestra appears as a dream to the sleeping Erinyes.
