Synopsis: Essays explore the social, philosophical, and political trends that influenced the writers of Greek drama.
"An extensive study. The introduction places the genre in its historical and literary context, and is invaluable as a touchstone for the essays that follow. The selections are by a wide range of writers and scholars...The chapter headings are annotated so that their contents are easily recognized and accessible. In fact, each article can stand alone as a study of the individual topic. Together, however, the essays can be read for a complete and fascinting study of the genre. An excellent resource to learn the trends and modes of the genre from the broadest sense to the most particular."
-- School Library Journal (November 2001) (School Library Journal 20011101)
"In general, the essays cover an idea, a philosophy, or a literary technique shared by several authors of the period. Most information on works and authors comes in small pieces wthin essays, which often proves entirely sufficient for students needing support for a research topic."

"The introduction to this title immediately challenges preconceptions...A historical overview of the genre and a discussion of its forms precede 20 well-chosen essays by prominent literary critics.
