Ancient Greek Herodotus Ἡρόδοτος 484 BC – 425 BC, the Father of History

History as Playing the Glass Bead Game with Pythagoras

In 1943, the Nobel wining novelist Herman Hesse published his novel The Glass Bead Game, Das Glasperlenspiel, set in a monastic society that develops minds by studying and playing the glass bead game. One would master philosophy and literature, and then focus on mathematics and music to be able to play the Game. Both mathematics and music are with us since the time of Pythagoras. History is like playing the Hesse's glass bead game with Pythagoras...

Mathematics is described as the science of pattern and music as the  of pattern, both using meditation within the process of contemplation developing own language of .

The Ancient Greek Herodotus Ἡρόδοτος 484 BC – 425 BC (H-R-DATOS) as his name suggests was a King's historian, the one who collects data for the King or the Priest. It is hard to believe that a family would have given such a name to a child. (“Statistcians” you shall be, so we shall name you H-R-DaToS).

Derveni Papyrus about Orphism and Ancient Greek s

Esoteric teachings of Golden Citizens of Ancient Greece

Learning from , and ancient  by Natasa Pantovic

Metamorphoses. Transformation. A journey of a  passing through Gaia, but also an epic poem in fifteen books written 2,000 years ago, by the Roman poet Ovid, completed in 8 AC inspired by the Ancient Greek Theogony Θεογονία “Birth of the Gods” attributed to Hesiod 700 BC, and the Derveni 500 BC.

The Oldest Greek Papyrus 500 BC Derveni Papyrus

The poet's writings are based on already fully established Ancient Greek manuscript tradition. Re-writing myths, the creation story, Ovid begins by describing how the elements emerge out of chaos, and how mankind degenerates from the Gold Age to the Silver Age to the Age of Iron. This is followed by an attempt by the giants (Titans) to seize the heavens, at which the God Jove sends a great flood which destroys all living things except one couple, Deucalion and Pyrrha.

I just read this interview with Tamsin Greig and I honestly can't wait to see the showing of the NT's production on Thursday.

Next up in the Will's World Project - The Ides of March
The Complete Works (Oxford Shakespeare) - William Shakespeare,John Jowett,Gary Taylor
Julius Caesar and Me: Exploring Shakespeare's African Play (Theatre Makers) - Joseph Paterson

So, the creators of Good Tickle Brain (click header for the link to their comic) decided to combine current events with the Ides of March theme. I'll stick with Shakespeare. 

 

As per usual, I'll read the play first...while also listening to the Arkangel Shakespeare production, then look to a couple of performances to see different takes on the play. 

 

I've got another Donmar Warehouse production lined up for this, as well as Greg Doran's production for the RSC. I may also look into Paterson Joseph's book about playing Brutus in Doran's production. 

 

Anyway, I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday.
