About the Author

Nicholas Baechle is Assistant Professor in the Hanover College Classics Department.


...this is a sound, detailed study, useful for scholars of metrics, tragedy, and comedy... -- Anne Mahoney, Tufts University * Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
Baechle gives us a broad, rigorously conducted, and theoretically sophisticated exploration of the iambic trimeter in Greek tragedy. But his achievement extends far beyond this technical tour de force. From his analysis of compositional factors, including hyperbaton, prosodic variation, and intractable word shapes, there emerges a major contribution to our understanding of dramatic style and metrical constraints, the aesthetic differences between dialogue and lyric, variations in the rhythmic qualities of the three tragedians, and of the way Old Comedy played against the trimeter of serious drama. -- Victor Bers, Classics Department, Yale University
