    ePUB ws musik.de Ì Orpheus MOBI ¶ orpheus book, Orpheus PDF/EPUBThis is as a blurb on the cover says 'a remarkable book' I notice that some Goodreads reviews of it are very positive and some are very negative having read it I feel that both are right or that their views are entirely justAnn Wroe has written a remarkable book it is a biography of Orpheus and since that is an impossible thing you have perhaps a pre taste of how this can be a divisive bookThe book is divided into seven strings or chapters as they might be conventionally called the first two it seemed to me covered the origins the third the voyage of the Argo the fourth Eurydike the fifth the journey into the Underworld the sixth life after Eurydice the seventh the death of Orpheus Within each 'String' Wroe discusses Orpheus and his 'life' by reference to those who have written about him so we move from Seneca to Rilke to Virgil to CG

    ePUB ws musik.de Ì Orpheus MOBI ¶ orpheus book, Orpheus PDF/EPUBReading this book made me understand what the rocks and trees must have felt when Orpheus walked by Wroe is a model of erudition a writer worth reading again and again I fell under her spell in my reading of this book amazed by her ability to synthesize two millenia of both myth and scholarship while also mixing in her own observations from a trip to BulgariaThraceWroe organizes the book by the strings of the lyre the stages of Orpheus's life The prose is dense but it is worth the effort to uncover the rhythms and images that her scholarship has uncoveredReading this book made me want to write books of my own such was the trance I was under I have long thought that Orpheus and Eurydice's story was the greatest of stories a
