The best book on Greek Play stage interpretation. Every director should read this so they not only stop doing their silly interpretations of the Three but also that of all the other greats too. No interpretation of a great will be better than how that great playwright wanted it.

This book should be compulsory for all film students too.

Excellent read!

Greek Tragedy in Action, about the role of physical movement and interaction in the presentation and understand of ancient Greek tragic drama, is the best book I know on the subject. Also, the only book I know on the subject.
