About the Author

Carl Shaw is Associate Professor of Ancient Greek Language and Literature at New College of Florida.


While generic relationships have become an important focus in the study of classical Greek theatre, satyr drama, though a partner in the tragic performances, has been relatively neglected. This new study illuminates a vital dimension of satyr drama by tracing its interaction with comedy, both Attic and West-Greek, from the beginnings into Roman times. Original, comprehensive, and engagingly written, Satyric Play will richly reward both newcomers and experienced fans of the genre. * Jeffrey Henderson, Boston University *
