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.

>thinking Deus Ex Machina is a valid criticism

Also, Longinus

I just find that Sophocles more subtle depiction of divinity resonates best with me. Besides, it's a play. I think the choices of the characters ought to explain and solve the plot, not a two-page explanation by an outside speaker.
Why Longinus, though? I know he has an Ars Poetica, but I didn't know he talked about tragedy. Could you explain?

I believe the Teacing Company has some great lectures on the Tragedies. Definitely worth to check it out
