Theater and the Competition of Art

Lecture no. 17 from the course: Ancient Greek Civilization

Theater and the Competition of Art

Taught by Professor Jeremy McInerney | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Therefore, the straightforward structure of most Greek dramas should not blind us to their powerful emotional role and content.
