Greek comedy by Gilbert Norwood( Book )

45 editions published between 1931 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the literary history of Greek comedy, the productions of the plays, their metre and rhythm, and the works of Aristophanes, Menander, Epicharnus, Cratinus, the School of Crates, and Eupolis. "All the greatest poets of Greece committed the same unintended offence: their overwhelming excellence thrust into partial or complete oblivion the merits of their less august fellow-writers. Aristophanes was so unquestionably the finest comic playwright of the fifth century that not a single work even of Cratinus has survived. This eclipsing power is still felt in our histories of literature, few readers of which are likely to divine that several of the now fragmentary plays were superior to some written by the master himself and still entirely extant. In this book I have naturally discussed Aristophanes and Menander at length and with deep pleasure; but my chief reason for undertaking it was an ambition to offer an adequate and illuminating account of numerous minor yet most engaging playwrights."

Andromache by Euripides( Book )

4 editions published in 1906 in Greek, Ancient and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andromache, written in the early years of the Peloponnesian War, shows the effects of war on the conquerors and the conquered. The other main theme is the role and nature of women, explored through the conflict between the contrasting figures of Andromache and Hermione. The play has a bold and original structure, which finds room for paranoia, nymphomania, racialism, blackmail, treachery, mental breakdown, elopement and revenge. The climax is a messenger speech describing the lynching of Neoptolemus in the temple of Apollo at Delphi."--BOOK JACKET
