This volume addresses the ethical issues of this play through an analysis of the language and argumentation which the characters use to explain and justify their behaviour. The focus is on the examination of the themes of aidos and dolos, and the way in which each contributes to our overall understanding of the vengeance as an act which, for all its justice, remains shameful.

By exploring the union between these two contradictory elements, this study exposes the ethical complexity of Sophokles treatment of the vengeance theme. Dolos & Dike contains a useful critique of recent interpretative approaches to the play, a full bibliography, and a complete index of passages cited.
