This Blackwell Guide introduces ancient Greek drama, which flourished principally in Athens from the sixth century BC to the third century BC.
A broad-ranging and systematically organised introduction to ancient Greek drama.
Discusses all three genres of Greek drama – tragedy, comedy, and satyr play.
Provides overviews of the five surviving playwrights – Aeschylus, Sophokles, Euripides, Aristophanes, and Menander, and brief entries on lost playwrights.
Covers contextual issues such as: the origins of dramatic art forms; the conventions of the festivals and the theatre; the relationship between drama and the worship of Dionysos; the political dimension; and how to read and watch Greek drama.
Includes 46 one-page synopses of each of the surviving plays.
"It guides without being too prescriptive; it is wide-ranging in the views it explores, judicious in its emphases and well balanced in its conclusions". (Prudentia, 1 October 2010)
"The book will be of enormous value for students and extremely useful as a teaching aid, and it will surely be a rare scholar who does not learn anything new from its wealth of detail." The Classical Review
“This book is a useful guide to the basics of the form and history of ancient Greek theater. Excellent resource for both undergraduate and graduate students.” Religious Studies Review"The highlight of this book is the predictably excellent chapter on comedy." Phoenix
