Summary
The book includes essays by seven of the foremost scholars of Greek drama. These writers explore the work of all three great tragedians, Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, and approach them from a variety of perspectives on history and theory, including post-structuralism and Marxism. They investigate the possibilities for coordinating theoretically informed readings of tragedy with a renewed attention to the pressure of material history within those texts. Like Greek tragedy itself, these essays will be of great interest to an extensive audience. They engage broad theoretical issues and also offer compelling new readings of the most important dramas
