"Bernhard Zimmermann begins by discussing how the tragic canon was formed and by tracing the early history of the tragic act. In lively and thorough summaries of the major works of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, he examines such topics as techniques of characterization, conditions and conventions of stage performances, musical and metrical aspects, and the religious and political content of the plays -- especially their relationship to the cult of Dionysus and to Athenian politics. He also discusses the importance of Greek tragedy for later developments in European literature. Book jacket."--Jacket." ;
