This paper aims to
reexamine the arguments concerning the three main problems of the fragmentary
, i.e. what character and conflict lies
behind Phaethon's excessive reluctance to the marriage; who the mysterious
bride is; and finally, what kind of exodos fits in the dramatic context on the
basis of the fragmentary textual evidence. In my discussion Goethe's
reconstruction is dealt with closely; moreover, the poet's suggestions prove to
be valuable not only artistically, but philologically as well. Some personal
bias of his treatment nevertheless hints at a new articulation of the
Phaethontic character in the Euphorion-episode of
and a general
reevaluation of the hybris-drama.
