About the Author:

Oliver Taplin is at Magdalen College.

Review:


"[This] is a fascinating commentary. Every controversial passage (and there are many) is discussed with incisive intelligence, great learning and also good-humored respect for opposing views; from the entry of the chorus in Persians to the final processional exeunt of Eumenides every important exit and entrance (real or imagined) provides the cue for an essay which, firmly based on the principles enunciated in the first chapter, enlightens and stimulates the reader." --Bernard Knox, Times Literary Supplement


"Taplin has made Greek tragedy more vivid and more accessible to us all, to the professional classicist, to the historian of the stage, and to would-be performers of ancient drama. He deserves our thanks and congratulations."--Mark Griffith, Phoenix

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1990. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The visual effect of the staging of Aeschylus plays was an essential part of their impact. And yet all that survives today are the scripts. Imagination, helped by anachronistic sources, has played the chief role for those dealing with the dramaturgy of Aeschylus works, and the result has usually been stages crowded with extras and equipment. In this book, the author approaches the subject from a completely different angle. He clears the stage and looks for clues of Aeschylus stagecraft in the texts of the plays themselves. He concentrates his study in an analysis of the exits and entrances in Aeschylus works with constant reference to the practice of Sophocles and Euripides as well. His arguments and conclusions are fascinating and thought-provoking, and make the book indispensable for anyone interested in ancient Greek drama and its staging.
