Why Athens A Reappraisal of Tragic Politics
D. M. Carter, "Why Athens?: A Reappraisal of Tragic Politics"
English | ISBN: 0199562326 | 2011 | 496 pages | PDF | 4 MB
This collection of fourteen essays and six short responses reconsiders Greek tragedy as a reflection of Athenian political culture. The contributors try to avoid making the controversial assumption that the politics of tragedy were of simple relevance to the Athenian democracy. Instead, they look for other ways to explain the Athenianness of tragedy. These include: the polyphonic discourse of tragedy; the presentation of Athens in some plays (and the representation of foreigners too); tragedy as an Athenian form of choral performance; and the ways in which family matters are presented, for example marriage alliances or inheritance law. Why Athens? opens up important new ways of considering tragedy as a political art form.

92 Acharnon Street A Year in Athens
John Lucas, "92 Acharnon Street: A Year in Athens"
English | ISBN: 0955010535 | 2009 | 219 pages | MOBI | 5 MB
Greece has always had its admirers, though none seems to have cherished the Athenian tavernas, the murderous traffic and the jaded prostitutes, the petty bureaucratic tyrannies, the street noise and the heroic individualists with the irony and detachment of John Lucas. Lucas' love for the realities of Greece finally banishes the banality of a half-century of tourism in this collection of memoirs and stories.

Timon of Athens
Timon of Athens By William Shakespeare, Thomas Middleton, John Jowett
2004 | 381 Pages | ISBN: 0198129386 | PDF | 3 MB
Timon of Athens is a bitterly intriguing study of a fabulously rich man who wastes his wealth on his friends, and, when he is finally impoverished, learns to despise humanity with a hatred that drives him to his grave. This edition offers an up-to-date commentary on the play that is more detailed and more thorough than any previously published, as well as a detailed discussion of Thomas Middleton's collaboration with Shakespeare.
