How to Stage Greek Tragedy Today.
University of Chicago Press, Chicago/London, 2007. 248p. ills. Paperback.'It isn't often that we see the idiom 'How to' prefacing the title of an academic study. In that sense, Simon Goldhill's no-nonsense How to Stage Greek Tragedy Today, is singular, but in more important ways such as organization and utility, Goldhill's book is equally impressive. (...) A particular strength of this spare and powerful publication is its brevity. There are notes and suggestions for further reading. In addition to plans and general illustrations, stage tableaux of Athol Fugard's The Island, Mnouchkine's Les Atrides, and the Peter Hall/Tony Harrison, Oresteia, provide accompaniment to Goldhill's guided discussions, as well as excellent examples of formal composition and pantomimic dramatization.'
