    That the works of the ancient tragedians still have an immediate and profound appeal surely needs no demonstration, yet the modern reader continually stumbles across concepts which are difficult to interpret or relate to ? moral pollution, the authority of oracles, classical ideas of geography ? as well as the names of unfamiliar legendary and mythological... more...
