 Philologica 7 (2001/2002): V. N. Iarxo. Iphigenia at Aulis by Innokentij Annenskij (Summary)
Unlike all other extant tragedies of Euripides, the initial monologue of Iphigenia at Aulis, composed in iambic trimeters, is framed by a dialogue, and this part of the prologue is not written in the usual iambs, but in anapaestic dimeters.
One of the main peculiarities of Annenskij’s translation is his amplification of the original, wherein introspective verbosity replaces the logical lucidity and plainness of the Greek verse.
In Iphigenia, one example of these three dots occurs in a passage of less than four poetic lines, and there are fragments in which we find two or three instances of three dots in each line!.
