What People are Saying About This
"This book contains a very important finding, which is likely to inject an entirely new, hitherto by and large unsuspected, element into the study of Greek drama. Thoroughly original, this book constitutes an important landmark in the study of Greek tragedy."
"Michael Vickers has written an ingenious, original, and scholarly book on an important subject. It is an argument that students of period need to take into account. Vickers is doing truly seminal work."
