Description - A Companion to Greek Tragedy by Justina Gregory
A Companion to Greek Tragedy provides readers with a fundamental grounding in Greek tragedy and also introduces them to the various methodologies and the lively critical dialogue that characterize the study of Greek tragedy today. The volume comprises 31 essays written by an international cohort of scholars. The essays are organized into four sections. The opening section on Contexts surveys Greek tragedy's historical, religious, political, and artistic background. A section on Elements follows, examining the genre's structural components. A section on Approaches presents a series of essays exemplifying particular lines of enquiry; and the final section on Reception traces the interpretative tradition from ancient to modern times. Throughout the volume, all ancient Greek is transliterated and translated, and technical terms are explained as they appear, making the Companion accessible to those without detailed knowledge of the language or the genre.
