5.0 out of 5 stars This book is as revolutionary as it is comprhensive.., 16 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Greek Tragedy in Action is one of those books that fills that all important gray area of introducing the novice and informing the expert. Whether you have a background in the genre or not you will find that Taplin has written an unobtrusive book that refuses to patronise the reader at any cost. His easy-to-use layout of the book (he goes through several plays by each of the great tragedians thematically) allows easy access to tragedy whether you want to focus on one specific play or an overview of it. It now only remails to be said that this book is a classic. It has revolutionised world of Greek tragedy, not by looking at the plays as spripts on a page but appreciating their all-to-often ignored theatrical nature. This book does far more than comprehensively review the field, it drags it out of the academics' book cases and appreciates the vivid, living, and exciting nature of Greek tragedy.
