'Greek Tragic Women on Shakespearean Stages' argues that ancient Greek plays exerted a powerful and uncharted influence on early modern England's dramatic landscape. Drawing on original research to challenge longstanding assumptions about Greek texts' invisibility, the work shows not only that the plays were more prominent than we have believed, but that early modern readers and audiences responded powerfully to specific plays and themes.
