About the Book:

A highly readable book, The Greek Playwright is a companion to The Blunt Playwright, which is currently used in colleges and universities across the country.

Picking up where The Blunt Playwright left off, Clem Martini returns to the subject of playwriting, turning his attention to the lessons modern playwrights can learn from the ancient Greeks. The Greek Playwright outlines the major playwrights of the era, their major works, and the impact they had on our modern understanding of drama. Clem Martini weaves his direct, informative, and entertaining style through centuries of dramatic evolution to show us exactly what the first dramatists have to say to contemporary playwrights.
