About this title


As in the modern theatre, Greek writers knew that changing a character's accent, costume and gesture could deceive an audience into thinking he is playing someone or something different. Both visual and verbal effects were used in Greek literature to persuade, deceive, distract and engage with an audience. Here, Nancy Worman explores just how this was achieved through studying the stylistic strategies employed by the characters Odysseus and Helen across different periods and literary genres.
