Theater Outside Athens: Drama in Greek Sicily and South Italy


Theater Outside Athens: Drama in Greek Sicily and South Italy Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume brings together archeologists, art historians, philologists, literary scholars, political scientists and historians to articulate the ways in which western Greek theater was distinct from that of the Greek mainland and, at the same time, to investigate how the two traditions interacted. The papers intersect and build on each other in their pursuit of a number of shared questions and themes: the place of theater in the cultural life of Sicilian and South Italian 'colonial cities;' theater as a method of cultural self-identification; shared mythological themes in performance texts and theatrical vase-painting; and the reflection and analysis of Sicilian and South Italian theater in the work of Athenian philosophers and playwrights. Together, the essays explore central problems in the study of western Greek theater. By gathering a range of perspectives and methods, this volume offers the first wide-ranging examination of this hitherto neglected history.
