Have to give a presentation on six Greek tragedies (Oedipus Rex, Antigone, Hippolytus and the Orestiad) in three weeks. So far I've read the first three and am about to get into the Aeschylus. As secondary material I've got Aristotle's Poetics, Nietzsche's Birth of Tragedy and Steiner's Death of Tragedy. Any other insightful or theoretical books on the subject?
Also, Greek tragedy general. So far, Euripides has been the worst. He literally needs Aphrodite and Artemis to come and solve his shit for him.
