Myth and Tragedy in Ancient Greece, Paperback / softback Book

Myth and Tragedy in Ancient Greece Paperback / softback

Part of the Zone Books series

Paperback / softback

Description

Jean-Pierre Vernant and Pierre Vidal-Naquet are leaders in a contemporary French classical scholarship that has produced a a stunning reconfiguration of Greek thought and literature.

In this work, published here as a single volume, the authors present a disturbing and decidedly non-classical reading of Greek tragedy that insists on its radical discontinuity with our own outlook and with our social, aesthetic, and psychological categories. Originally published in French in two volumes, this new single-volume edition includes revised essays from volume one and is the first English translation of both volumes. Distributed for Zone Books.
