Exchange, Gender, and Subjectivity in Greek Tragedy
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.
