This is the first substantial study of Greek tragedies known to us only from small fragmentary remnants that have survived. The book discusses a variety of Greek tragic fragments from all three of the famous Athenian tragedians: Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides. The recent publication of translations of some of these fragments (Sophocles in the Loeb series, and Euripides in the Aris and Phillips series) means that the fragments are now more readily available than ever for study. The large number of extant fragments of ancient Greek tragedy can tell us enormous amounts about that genre and about the society which produced it. Papyrus finds over the last hundred years have drastically altered and supplemented our knowledge of ancient Greek tragedy; the book is at the cutting-edge of research in this field.

About the Author:


Fiona McHardy is Lecturer in Classics at the University of Reading, and is co-editor of Women's Influence on Classical Civilization (Routledge). James Robson is Lecturer in Classical Studies at the Open University and has co-written a course book of classical Greek for post-beginners. David Harvey was, until his retirement, Lecturer in Classics, University of Exeter.

Review:


"... remarkable survey of the whole subject that is offered in the first three chapters (only one of which derives from a paper actually presented at the conference). Rudolf Kassel (7-20; originally published in German in 1991) and David Harvey (21-48) between them provide a detailed overview of the entire history of the collection and publication of tragic fragments from 1619 until today (with mention of projects in progress) ... Everyone concerned with tragic fragments will need to read the first three chapters (Harvey's, in particular, is a vital study aid); everyone concerned with any of the plays or themes discussed in the next six will need to read one or more of them - and the last is just a delight."--Journal of Hellenic Studies
