Wohl offers an illuminating analysis of the exchange of women in Sophocles' "Trachiniae", Aeschylus' "Agamemnon", and Euripides' "Alcestis". She asserts that while the tragedies present an affirmation of Athens' reigning ideologies (including its gender hierarchy), they also offer the possibility of resistance to them.

"An important new work from the perspective of gender (rather than exclusively feminist) theory, this volume should appeal to professors and graduate students in the classics."- Choice
