SILENZI, Marina. La tragedia en la filosofía nietzscheana: La figura de Eros y Thanatos en Antígona y Judith. Cuad. Sur, Filos. [online]. 2005, n.34, pp. 163-180. ISSN 1668-7434.

The apollonian and the dionysiac are fundamental elements in greek culture because they affirm the life. Apolo, as the dream's god allows the artist to molder the figures that presents to him in dreams, and to give form to the unit of sculptures of the olympics gods. They are the "transfigurator mirror" for the greek man, who reflects himself on it, imitating the divine profile. Dionysus, as the truth and the primordial goodwill of nature that receive the human been on her chest. The synthesis of Apolo and Dionysus show the highest form of art, the tragedy. The figures of Dionysus and Apolo also are related with Eros and Thanatos: love as the ecstasies and the dissolution of the "principium individuationis" in the dionysiac, dead as the finite life of the human been, remarketed for the limit and the individuality that are imposed for the apollonian. Either in Antigona as in Judith, as it appear in Judith's painting of Klimt, are given these aspects, Eros and Thanatos. Both women are decided to autosacrilege to get their own objective, and in both of them love is the motor of her acts: fraternal love, and love for her town and her god.
