History of Literature Episode 6 – Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides


Author Jacke Wilson examines the works of three great Greek tragedians, Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides – and attempts to solve the mystery of why Friedrich Nietzsche admired two of the three and despised the other.

  1. When I click to play the episode it says that the media is not available because the blog post is not in the published state. Very odd.


      1. I listened to it on historyofliterature.com with no problem. But when I tested it just this moment, I transcribed the message I heard:

        “You are currently previewing your media episode. The reason you are not seeing or hearing your media is because your blog post is still in preview mode. We have created this demo file to alleviate any concern. As soon as you publish your blog post, your media will switch to a published state and be available.”


    1. Okay, that helps. I think it should be fixed now. Thank you for the heads up!

      By the way – thanks for the voicemail the other day. I found it very touching. Would it be okay to run it on the podcast? (I wouldn’t include it unless you give permission- and if not, that’s totally fine.) In any case, hope you and your family are enjoying the season! Keep reading!


      1. All fixed now. I tested it.

        Sure. I wonder what I said haha. I hope it was intelligent ^_^

        I hope you and your family have a special Christmas ~


      2. It was very intelligent! Also very thoughtful and heartfelt. I think it will help people. There’s a lot of loneliness out there and it’s good for people to remember they’re not alone…even (and especially!) during the holidays… 🙂


      3. Ah yes, your post about loneliness. That was pretty neat. And I don’t use the word neat very often. I’d get kicked out of the melancholy guild. The last time they nailed me for saying ‘awesome’ one too many times.
