This reissue with a new supplement is fully expanded and brought up-to-date. 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.

About the Author:

John Gould is at Bristol University. D. M. Lewis is at University of Oxford.

Review:


"Needs no praises from a reviewer. The author has long been recognised as the chief authority in England on the externals of the ancient drama."--Gilbert Murray, The Spectator


"A work of the first importance: not only does it contain practically everything that is known about the Festivals themselves, but the author has dealt at great length with the Actors, Costume, the Chorus, the Audience, and the Artists of Dionysus....It does indeed constitute the most authoritative and up-to-date record of this subject yet produced in English."--Greece and Rome


"A great contribution to the history of ancient drama and civilization."--American Journal of Philology
