Rezensionen

(Bryn Mawr Classical Review,December 2008)
"Engaging introduction to Greek tragedy, ... GreekTragedy is written in an informal, appealing style ....Rabinowitz is able to lead the reader quickly to the centralissues of a play, often with reference to key terms or ideasalready brought up in the 'context' chapters, and thento explore those ideas as pairs of irreconcilables in a wayconsistent with her overall emphasis on the ambivalences,ambiguities, and unresolved problems tragedy poses to ancient andmodern audiences alike."
-Fiona McHardy, Roehampton University
"As a supplement ... [it's] a vein of gold. [Theauthor's] nuanced familiarity with every aspect of the topicof Greek drama is breath-taking." (About.com) "A new approach to a popular subject offering readings ofsome of the best-known Attic tragedies in both their ancient andmodern contexts. The author's application of contemporary debatesand issues to the ancient material is refreshing and stimulating.This book has much to offer."
