Abstract

The figure of the wife of a right man – victimized precisely because of his unconditional faithfulness – is very close to that of the anti-hero of Sophocles’s theater, which strongly objects to the hero choice in name of the mentality of the common man. On this literary form, the character of his wife might therefore have been placed in the story of Job. The Old Greek attests clearly that by its addition (v. 9a-e), the intervention of Job’s wife was defined more favorably, and making her a kind of anti-heroine, on the dramatic scheme of the antagonism of Ismene and Chrysothemis against their respective hero.
