Oliver Taplin's seminal study was revolutionary in drawing o Professor Taplin explores nine plays, including Aeschylus' agamemnon and Sophocles' Oedipus the King . The details of theatrical techniques and stage directions, used by playwrights to highlight key moments, are drawn out and related to the meaning of each play as a whole. With extensive translated quotations, the essential unity of action and speech in Greek tragedy is demonstrated. Now firmly established as a classic text, Greek Tragedy in Action is even more relevant today, when performances of Greek tragedies and plays inspired by them have had such an extraordinary revival around the world.

This book attempts to reinstate the works of Greek Tragedy as plays rather than just texts to be read. Taplin concentrates on three plays each by Sophocles, Aeschylus and Euripides to do this.
