Children in Greek Tragedy

Pathos and Potential

Emma M. Griffiths

  • Proposes a new paradigm for the study of child figures in Greek tragedy
  • Explains particular features of tragedy which have not been well understood in previous scholarship and proposes new models for interpretation
  • Considers a range of new evidence, such as the textual cues for child movement, and draws on detailed analysis of staging considerations
  • Establishes with greater certainty the socio-historical context for the use of child actors
