In 17 original essays, a distinguished international cast considers the text, interpretation and cultural context of Greek tragedy. There are detailed studies of single plays, of major themes in each of the three tragedians, of modern approaches to tragic text and interpretation, and of the genre's social, political and religious background. Some of tragedy's most distinguished interpreters here present their latest work, and pay tribute to the scholarly achievements of the volume's honorand, Professor A F Garvie.Table of ContentsDouglas Cairns (University of Edinburgh) and Vayos Liapis (Universit de Montral), Introduction; Oliver Taplin (Magdalen College, Oxford), Aeschylus' Persai--the Entry of Tragedy into the Celebration Culture of the 470s?; A.
