70 editions published between 1954 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book offers substance to contemporary reflections on manhood by looking at comradeship, heroism, virtue, wandering, trickery, father-son issues, relations between men and a variety of feminine forms, and the intervention of the Gods.

Greek tragedy and the emotions : an introductory study by William Bedell Stanford( Book )
11 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
According to Aristotle the main purpose of tragedy is the manipulation of emotions, and yet there are relatively few accessible studies of the precise dynamics of emotion in the Athenian theatre. In Greek Tragedy and the Emotions, first published in 1993, W.B. Stanford reviews the evidence for 'emotionalism' - as the great Attic playwrights presented it, as the actors and choruses expressed it, and as their audiences reacted to it. Sociological aspects of the issue are considered, and the whole range of emotions, not just 'pity and fear', is discussed. The aural, visual and stylistic methods of
The frogs by Aristophanes( Book )
37 editions published between 1958 and 1993 in 4 languages and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Among extant Greek comedies, the Frogs is unique for the light it throws on classical Greek attitudes to tragedy and to literature in general. It merits a much more extensive commentary than it has so far received, for the establishment of the text itself has rested for over a century on collations which were inadequate and inaccurate. At the same time, its most problematic passages have been the subject, in recent years, of more scholarly articles than those of any other Greek play

The Oresteia by Aeschylus( Book )
8 editions published between 1975 and 1994 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Orestia--Agamemnon, Choephori, and The Eumenides--depicts the downfall of the house of Atreus: after King Agamemnon is murdered by Clytemnestra, their son, Orestes, is commanded by Apollo to avenge the crime by killing his mother, and he does so, bringing on himself the wrath of the Furies and the judgment of Athens. Together, the three plays are one of the major achievements of Greek antiquity. Hughes's 'acting version' of the trilogy is itself a great performance; while artfully inflected with the contemporary, it has a classical beauty and authority"--Jacket
