Choruses in ancient drama often provided some moralizing lesson to the protagonist, especially in tragedy. However, the figures of the elderly chorus often seem to imply a traditional way of thinking that has become outdated with time, or, in some cases, provide a model of inefficacy.

examination of the messenger works through a set of skillful readings of key texts. -Thomas Falkner, author of "The Poetics of Old Age in Greek Epic, Lyric, and Tragedy". The messenger who reports important action that has occurred offstage is a familiar inhabitant of Greek tragedy. Breaking new ground in the study of Athenian tragedy, Barrett deepens our understanding of many central texts and of a form of theater that highlights the fragility and limits of human knowledge, a theme explored by its use of the messenger.

Falkner (classical studies, The College of Wooster) looks at the theme of old age in Greek literature, focusing on the genres of epic, lyric, and tragedy. He demonstrates that Greek literary representations of old age in works by Homer, Sappho, and Sophocles suggest a society in which the status of the elderly is being renegotiated, and argues that the literature represents a complex interaction between culture and poetic traditions with the capacity to subvert as well as reflect dominant views.
