<< Die inter- und transdisziplinären Verhältnisse kultureller Vermittlung


Edit Técsy (Szeged)



Mithology speaks about Orpheus as a parent of a religion, literature alludes him as a natural poet.

Orpheus was a legendary singer in Greek myth who was musician to the Argonauts, could charm animals by his song, rescued his wife Eurydice from death by his music, and was himself torn to pieces by Maenads, though his head continued to sing after death. His father is Apollon and he is priest os Dionysos, so his figure is variant and deviant. The orfics are his followers - but we have not enough information about them and the ancient orphic literature. This can explain that we have different texts wich called orphic in the 20th century. I think we can understand easier the orfism if we examine "torn” texts, and wich theme is the eating (of meal, of the body or the text). My paper discuss the different aspects of orphism in the Hungarian literature and I try to define it.
