Simon Goldhill focuses on the play''s themes--justice, sexual politics, violence, and the role of man in ancient Greek culture--in this general introduction to Aeschylus'' Oresteia, one of the most important and influential of all Greek dramas. After exploring how Aeschylus constructs a myth for the city in which he lived, a final chapter considers the influence of the Oresteia on more contemporary theater. The volume''s organized structure and guide to further reading will make it an invaluable reference for students and teachers.
