Summary
""Greek drama demands a story of origins," writes Karen Bassi in Acting Like Men. 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." "Bassi's discussion of such theaterlike practices and experiences encompasses a wide variety of texts and artifacts including epic poetry, historical narrative, philosophical treatises, visual media, and the dramatic texts themselves, and she proposes new conceptual categories for understanding Greek drama as a cultural institution." "The book ends with a revisionist look at Dionysus as the tyrannical god of the theater in Euripides' Bacchae and Aristophanes' Frogs."--Jacket
