Greek Dramatists – Famous Authors Video
It’s doubtful whether the three dramatists examined in this film would have emerged without the evolution of the democratic system of 5th century be Athens. These writers and the powerful works they produced themselves affected the way ideas of freedom and individual worth developed in their own time. This film explains something of the times in which the writers lived, what we know of their lives, the theatre of Greece and its conventions and ends with a brief exploration of striking elements of their work. It’s fascinating stuff for anyone interested in drama and how it works upon an audience.
