Editorial Reviews


"Rehm's readings of individual scenes are frequently stimulating and original. His central intuition, that space matters in Greek tragedy, is an important corrective to the Aristotelian textual approach which has, even recently, continued to dominate readings of Greeks tragedy. The strength of Rehm's readings comes from his awareness of the multiple levels on which these plays operate. . . . He draws on a wide range of scholarship, and argues for a flexible approach, but one which pays attention above all theatrical performance, to the movement of bodies in space."--Emily Wilson, Times Literary Supplement

From the Inside Flap

"A significant contribution to the field. Rush Rehm offers a most interesting 'theatre' approach to the subject while bringing into play a wide knowledge of issues relating to the dramatic texts themselves, as well as to Greek literature in general, and Greek society and history. Attractively and fluently written, this is much more than just another book on the 'staging' of Greek tragedy: it rigorously examines some fashionable ideas about Greek tragedy and offers useful corrective analyses."--John Davidson, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

"Written with clarity and care, this book is theatrically insightful and sophisticated while also synthesizing an impressive range of scholarship. Its special strength lies in its ability to draw together the two branches of contemporary criticism of Greek tragedy, the text-based and the performance-based, into a balanced study that will be helpful to readers on both sides of the divide."--Justina Gregory, Smith College
