Editorial Reviews

There are many short works on Greek tragedy, but Zimmermann offers something different from any of them, something that I think of as indispensable to any honest work on the subject. He is not out to persuade us to read Greek tragedy. He is out to describe what is at present known about it. This he does with a truly amazing concision and clarity, leaving no base untouched. Nothing available in English can compare with this book as a brief, well-balanced, and authoritative introduction.
