abstract

The paper investigates the themes of war in Sophocles’ Ajax, with special attention to the neglected third stasimon. The meditation of the Chorus and its resolute condemnation of war shed new lights on some key themes of the tragedy such as hate, vengefulness and violence, and establishes a dialogue with Homer’s Iliad, both through the reworking of many epic idioms and a reflection on the human values opposing to war.
