Poet, Public, and Performance in Ancient Greeceby Lowell Edmunds (Editor), Robert W. Wallace (Editor)
Poetry in archaic and classical Greece was a practical art, arising from specific social or political circumstances. The interpretation of a poem or drama must therefore be viewed in the context of its performance. This book brings together a distinguished group of contributors to reconstruct the performance context of a wide array of works, including the epic poem, tragedy, lyric, elegy, and proverbs. 200 pp.
