Greek Tragedy in Action

By Taplin, Oliver

London: Routledge, 2003. Oliver Taplin's seminal study was revolutionary in drawing out the significance of stage action in Greek tragedy at a time when plays were often read purely as texts, rather than understood as performances. Professor Taplin explores nine plays, including Aeschylus' Agamemnon 'and Sophocles'Oedipus the King' The details of theatrical techniques and stage directions, used by playwrights to highlight key moments, are drawn out and related to the meaning of each play as a whole. With extensive translated quotations, the essential unity of action and speech in Greek tragedy is demonstrated. Now firmly established as a classic text, Greek Tragedy in Action is even more relevant today, when performances of Greek tragedies and plays inspired by them have had such an extraordinary revival around the world.. 2nd Ed. Softcover. New.

The Trojan Women [With] Helen and Orestes By Yiannis Ritsos

By Euripides ; Ritsos, Yannis; MacEwen, Gwendolyn ; Tsingos, Nikos, (Translators)

Toronto: Exile Editions, 1990. With a stunning command of the Greek language and a mastery of poetic nuance, this translation of Euripides' play breathes unparalleled life into an ancient masterpiece. Using vocabulary that gives the sense that the play was written with an appreciation of and application to the 20th and 21st centuries, this adaptation goes beyond the timeless plot of the consequences of war and the fate of both the victors and the losers and focuses on the modern-day issues of feminism and women's rights. Also included in this volume are two long poems--"Helen" and "Orestes"--by contemporary Greek poet Yannis Ritsos, who was nominated for the Nobel Prize. (Neat tight copy but marred with some pencil underlinings & comments in margins) . Reprint. Original Wraps. Good.
