In this Antigone supplement students explore the evolution of Greek tragedy from the plays of Aeschylus, to those of Sophocles to the psychological dramas of Euripides. Although this lesson supplements the chapter “Roots of Drama, Rites of Dionysus” in the NEXUS volume Antigone and the Greek World, it can be taught independently of the book.
