Tragedy on the Comic Stage

Matthew C. Farmer

  • First monograph devoted exclusively to paratragedy in almost fifty years
  • First sustained effort to analyze paratragedy in the comic fragments and to contextualize Aristophanic paratragedy within its broader generic context
  • Close reading of numerous fifth- and fourth-century comic fragments that have received little or no scholarly attention
