About this product
- DescriptionThe esteem in which satyr drama was held in antiquity arouses curiosity and controversy. This title explores questions central to the genre, including how did satyr drama relate to comedy and tragedy; how closely was it tied to its tragic trilogy; and, how did the Athenians react to pro-satyric drama, such as the Alcestis .
