Oliver Taplin's seminal study was revolutionary in drawing o Professor Taplin explores nine plays, including Aeschylus' agamemnon and Sophocles' Oedipus the King . The details of theatrical techniques and stage directions, used by playwrights to highlight key moments, are drawn out and related to the meaning of each play as a whole.

Now firmly established as a classic text, Greek Tragedy in Action is even more relevant today, when performances of Greek tragedies and plays inspired by them have had such an extraordinary revival around the world.
