Zur verbalen Gestaltung des fiktiven Schauplatzes in der attischen Tragödie des 5. Jhs. v.Chr.

On the basis of three plays — Philoctetes, Oedipus at Colonus and Ion — it explains the extent to which this litera­ry concept influences directorial application and what effect it has on the scenic features and the audience.
