Description

'Abandoning the search for ritual and autochthonous origins of Greek drama, Bassi argues for a more secular and less formalist approach to the emergence of theatrical production in ancient Greece. Taking a broad view of drama as a cultural phenomenon, Bassi looks at theatrical performance as part of what Foucault has called a discursive formation...this formation also includes the representation of...practices where they occur outside of theatrical performance in fifth-century Athens'.
