Editorial Reviews

Review

"This superb book is so well-elaborated, cogent, and revealing that my jaw would drop every few pages as I marveled at how well Ringer's approach illuminates the play. I especially liked the analysis of the three-actor convention, which has never before been so well handled. Also impressive is the way Ringer gracefully analyzes both dialog and action in considerable detail with great skill and insight."--Richard Hornby, University of California, Riverside

|Ringer, who actually produces plays, has shown us what it might have meant to an ancient audience to hear Tecmessa speak in the same voice that Odysseus or Athene had a bare sixty lines earlier: she would combine in her very voice the roles of sympathizer and revealer of Ajax.--Barbara Hughes Fowler, University of Wisconsin-Madison
