  • This book presents ancient Greek tragedy in the context of late twentieth-century reading, criticism and performance. The twelve chapters, all newly commissioned for this Companion and written by seven distinguished scholars, cover tragedy as an institution in the civic life of ancient Athens, a range of approaches to the surviving plays, and changing patterns of reception, adaptation, and performance from antiquity to the present.
