It discusses the organization of the dramatic festivals, describes the acting style, actors, costumes, dancing, music, and audiences' tastes and behavior, and provides a full presentation of the literary, epigraphic, and archaeological evidence on which any discussion of the dramatic festivals is based, such as the difficulties of interpretation.
