Dionysus Since 69 by Edith Hall

Book Description

Greek tragedy is currently being performed more frequently than at any time since classical antiquity. This book is the first to address the fundamental question, why has there been so much Greek tragedy in the theatres, opera houses, and cinemas of the last three decades? A detailed chronological appendix of production information and lavish illustrations supplement the fourteen essays by an interdisciplinary team of specialists from the worlds of classics, theatre studies, and the professional theatre. They relate the recent appeal of Greek tragedy to social trends, political developments, aesthetic and performative developments, and the intellectual currents of the last three decades, especially multiculturalism, post-colonialism, feminism, post-structuralism, revisions of psychoanalytical models, and secularization.

Women Classical Scholars by Edith Hall Women Classical Scholars, Hardback (October 2016)

This volume celebrates the women born between the Renaissance and 1913 who played significant roles in the history of classical scholarship. Synthesizing incisive case-studies with overviews of the evolution of the discipline, it explores their legacy and provides scholars of today with the female intellectual ancestors they did not know they had.

Ancient Greeks by Edith Hall Ancient Greeks, Paperback (March 2016)

They gave us democracy, philosophy, poetry, rational science, the joke. They built the Parthenon and the Library of Alexandria. But who were the ancient Greeks? And what was it that enabled them to achieve so much? This title offers a revelatory way of viewing this geographically scattered people, and more.
