Classical scholars are turning increasingly to the study of Greek tragic fragments, engaging with fragmentary texts in different ways. Tragic fragments inform discussions in areas ranging from cultural history through stagecraft to philosophy, and touch on topics as diverse as the perception of non-Greeks in classical Athens, ghosts on the Attic stage, and ancient views of artistic creation. This introductory chapter provides an overview of the main themes covered in the book. The recurring theme is that of contextualization — fragments require a context in order to be fully understood.
