By way of a comparative study Weyenberg aims to identify the factors that determine whether or not a playwright, in appropriating Greek tragedy, is successful in contributing to, rather than restricting, the post-colonial political and cultural debate he intends to participate in. She will illustrate that this is largely dependent on whether or not the playwright succeeds in moving beyond an oversimplified translation of the (often binary yet never simplistic) structures that are at the basis of the original narrative, thereby avoiding an unrefined oppositional interpretation of coloniser and colonised and acknowledging the syncretic nature of culture.

The emphasis should be on writing in relation to, rather than against, the original canonical text.Looptijd 01/2006 - onbekendDissertatie Ja
