Whatever happened to Greek tragedy?

Inaugural Lecture by Professor Matthew Wright

A Department of Classics and Ancient History lecture
Date22 November 2017
Time17:30 to 18:30
PlaceNewman Purple LT

The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception from 6.30pm - 8.00pm in the foyer of Newman Building.

Greek tragedy is one of the most popular and best known genres of ancient literature. But it is not as well known as we like to think, for today all that remains of tragedy is a mere thirty-two plays, a tiny fraction of what once existed. This lecture investigates what happened to all the other plays, and imagines a counterfactual scenario in which a completely different selection of tragedies happened to survive.
