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.
