SILVA, Maria de Fátima. Héctor, un “héroe” controvertido en Reso de Pseudo-Eurípides. Synthesis (La Plata) [online]. 2018, vol.25, n.2, pp.39-39. ISSN 0328-1205.

The authorship of Rhesus is a controversial subject, although the epic and tragic marks are clear in its structure and style. In this study we will focus on Hector, the protagonist to several commentators. There seems to be a consensus that his tragic version loose prestige and humanity if compared with his epic model. First of all, tragedy omits a trace mainly responsible for this devaluation: the king now in charge of Troy is not the defensor of his people, or the man sensitive in his personal relationships with his mother, Hecuba, his wife and son, Andromache and Astianax, or even with the cause of all evils, Helen. Hector is now only the warrior who acts under the values related to this condition: authority in front of his subordinates and treatment of the enemy. He is confronted with a code of honor, where aidos, sophrosyne and philia assure to the army, of Trojans and their allies, cohesion and success.

Palabras clave : Iliad; Doloneia; Euripides; Agônes.
