"... remarkable survey of the whole subject that is offered in the first three chapters (only one of which derives from a paper actually presented at the conference). Rudolf Kassel (7-20; originally published in German in 1991) and David Harvey (21-48) between them provide a detailed overview of the entire history of the collection and publication of tragic fragments from 1619 until today (with mention of projects in progress) ... Everyone concerned with tragic fragments will need to read the first three chapters (Harvey's, in particular, is a vital study aid); everyone concerned with any of the plays or themes discussed in the next six will need to read one or more of them - and the last is just a delight." --Journal of Hellenic Studies
