n Acta Classica : Proceedings of the Classical Association of South Africa - On the Structure of Sophocles' Trachiniae

This is currently unavailable for purchase.

These sections feature a transition from ignorance to knowledge, from passivity to activity and from emotion to reason. The whole movement advances towards Heracles' deification.
