Description

Excerpt from Studies From Attic Drama For those who are unfamiliar with the conditions under which the Greek play was produced, it may be stated that the occasion was a religious festival at which the dramatists competed, the theatre was in the Open air (the theatre at Athens seating about thirty thousand people), and the actors, who were men, for the female as for the male parts, wore masks and were artificially raised by a sort of high clog or buskin.' Little reliance was, or indeed could be. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
