MEDIA REVIEWS
"Engaging introduction to Greek tragedy, ... Greek Tragedy is written in an informal, appealing style ... .Rabinowitz is able to lead the reader quickly to the central issues of a play, often with reference to key terms or ideas already brought up in the 'context' chapters, and then to explore those ideas as pairs of irreconcilables in a way consistent with her overall emphasis on the ambivalences, ambiguities, and unresolved problems tragedy poses to ancient and modern audiences alike." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, December 2008) "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."
