Justina Gregory repudiates this notion and asserts that the theater was the most . These are a small sampling of the gems you will find in this book.

Justina Gregory repudiates this notion and asserts that the theater was the most democratic of Hellenic institutions because the audience was representative of the demos. There is every reason to believe that the theater audience spanned the full spectrum of society: men, women, and children; aristocrats, commoners, and slaves; poor and wealthy; city-dwellers and rustics; citizens, metics, and foreigners (5). This is critical information to know when thinking about Greek drama. Justina Gregory’s close reading of individual plays is as enlightening as her more broad elucidations.

It is a boon to scholarship that Euripides’ first version of theHippolytusdid not find favor with the Athenian public, so that he rewrote the play for presentation at the City Dionysia in 428 . eISBN: 978-0-472-02770-5. Although only a few fragments of the original version are extant, they allow for a limited comparison of the two versions and the identification of one element–the. theme of moderation-that seems to have been fundamental to Euripides’ concept of the legend from the outset.

Political by its very nature, Greek tragedy reflects on how life should be lived in the polis, and especially the polis that was democratic Athens. Instructional as well, drama frequently concerns itself with the audience's moral education. Euripides and the Instruction of the Athenians draws on these political and didactic functions of tragedy for a close analysis of five plays: Alcestis, Hippolytus, Hecuba, Heracles, and Trojan Women. Clearly written and persuasively argued, this volume addresses itself to all who are interested in Greek tragedy. Nonspecialists and scholars alike will deepen their understanding of this complex writer and the tumultuous period in which he lived.
