About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1948, this book presents an account regarding aspects of style in the works of Aeschylus. The method of the text is based in part on the analysis of lists of words and other features of style, for use in the comparison of various plays or passages. These lists are incorporated into a more conventional analysis of various formal and stylistic elements. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Aeschylus, literary criticism and classical drama.
