About this deal

These mild oaths are euphemisms, the first for “by Jesus” or “by God” (Jove is another name for Jupiter, the principal Roman god), and the folksy variant by cracky for “by Christ. By Joe is a wonderful variation, only possible in a period in which knowledge of classical matters is all but extinct. These recordings have opened up major productions to viewers who may otherwise never have seen them. The exclamations “by Jove” and “by Jupiter” eventually filtered into poetic and literary English, but they were not euphemisms at first, since they invoked the name of an actual Roman deity.

I really thought it had vanished from the world of words, though a quick look around shows quite a number of examples.Our shows combine text, music, and movement, and we like to perform in unexpected spaces – libraries, converted factories, art galleries – to connect with the local communities in which those spaces are situated.

While beginning to develop a new project, By Jove collaborate with UCL and the Institute of Classical Studies to produce one-off poetry events Homer’s Womenand Weaving Women’s Storiesrespectively. It has also been linked to Jehovah, a form of the Hebrew name of God used in some translations of the Bible. Jove is the older name the Romans had for the god Jupiter (which derives from an alteration of Jovis pater, father Jove). tremendous and adds to the plot as we also get to hear the machinations of a touring company as well as the petty jealousies that can bubble and threaten but often just bubble back down again. The Annual Meeting of Postgraduates in the Reception of the Ancient World (AMPRAW) commission a new version of Euripides’ Bacchaefor performance at Senate House library in November.
