MEDIA REVIEWS
"Nancy Sorkin Rabinowitz has made a most useful contribution to the field... An insightful discussion of tragedy which is up-to-date with scholarly developments and academic debate, which offers helpful modern parallels throughout in connection with political and social issues." (Scholia Reviews, 2009) "A new approach to a popular subject offering readings of some of the best-known Attic tragedies in both their ancient and modern contexts. The author's application of contemporary debates and issues to the ancient material is refreshing and stimulating. This book has much to offer." Fiona McHardy, Roehampton University "As a supplement ... [it's] a vein of gold. [The author's] nuanced familiarity with every aspect of the topic of Greek drama is breath-taking." (About.com)
