Published 2023-06-21


  • Greek tragedy,
  • Astydamas,
  • post-classical theatre,
  • Hector


The paper discusses the fragments of Astydamas’ Hector, some of which ascribed only by conjecture, and draws some conclusions on the play in order to recognize hints of the evolution of tragedy in the 4th century BC. The paper stresses in particular the craft of the dramaturgy and the relevance of pathetic elements and of the psychological investigation, according to what Aristotle will say in his Poetics.
