Subject:        Shakespeare's Classical Precursors

Following this line of inquiry on unwitnessed scenes in Shakespeare, I
have been looking further at Shakespeare's classical inheritance and
trying to understand how the nuntius-figure in Greek and Latin drama
(Euripides, Seneca) affects his use of messengers to present offstage
events. Any reference(s) people might provide, besides Gerald Else's
_Origins and Early Forms of Greek Tragedy_ would be greatly appreciated.
