The aim of this paper is to investigate the different ways in which silence is handled in one of Sophocles’ oldest dramas, Women of Trachis, where the poet seems to be experimenting with various techniques for representing silence on stage: Iole’s silence is worked into a veritable tableau vivant; Lichas and Deianeira display reticence; and a deep silence surrounds the suffering of Heracles as he is brought on stage, before he in turn, in the exodos, imposes lasting silence on himself.
