Editorial Reviews

This new series is a subset of Greenhaven's Literary Companion series, offering anthologies of articles on aspects of different literary movements. Greek Drama, for example, starts out by introducing its origins and the difficulty of reconstructing how the dramas were originally staged, then provides sets of articles on the characteristics and conventions of Greek drama, Greek tragedy and Greek comedy, and its living legacy. A chronology at the end helps place events in time, and the annotated table of contents and the brief summaries that preface each article will help YAs navigate easily through these titles. The articles have been excerpted from a variety of sources, and edited for clarity. English students and teachers alike will appreciate these collections of literary criticism that examine a variety of authors, styles, and themes. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2000, Greenhaven Press, 208p, 22cm, bibliog, index, $13.96. Ages 16 to adult. Reviewer: Paula Rohrlick; May 2000 (Vol. 34 No. 3)
