The play dramatizes the suffering and rage of Philoctetes and the moral and emotional development of Odysseus' assistant, the young Neoptolemus." "This is an introduction to the play for students and lay readers. The well focused chapters on Greek theatre and performance, the mythical background, and the literary, intellectual, and political context illuminate the issues with which the play grapples. Its persuasive analyses of the characters and plot shed light on the play's complexities and ambiguities, making Sophocles' great play more accessible, enjoyable, and meaningful to modern readers"--Jacket." ;
