- Performance studies of classical drama include McDonald and Walton 2007; for Greek drama see Taplin 1977 and 1978, Wiles 1991, 1997, 2000, and 2007; on Roman drama see Slater 1985, Beacham 1992, Moore 1998, and Marshall 2006. Performance studies of Greek poetry include Foley 1991, Nagy 1996, and Stehle 1997. Csapo and Slater 1995 provide a very useful compendium of both Greek and Roman primary sources. On performance in Roman oratory see Graf 1991 and Aldrete 1999. Those interested in the practical aspects of modern performance might begin with Cohen 2008, the most widely used introduction to acting. Cole 1992 makes good connections between acting and reading.
