Description - Tragic Ways of Killing a Woman by Nicole Loraux

In ordinary life the Athenian woman was allowed no accomplishments beyond being a wife and mother. In Greek tragedy, however, women die violently and, through violence, master their own fate. Through her reading of these texts, Loraux illuminates Greek attitudes toward death, sexuality and gender.
