Tragic Plots: A New Reading from Aeschylus to Lorca

Cover
Ashgate, 2000 - 248 Seiten
A wide-ranging account of tragic drama from the Greeks to Arthur Miller. It puts forward a bold and vigorously developed argument about the recurrent concerns of tragedy, and proposes to uncover the archetypal tragic plot that emerges at key points of historical transition. It traces this plot through diverse formations on Athens, Renaissance England and the modern world, and offers detailed analysis of over 20 plays. The needs of the first-time reader are not forgotten, while challenging new light is thrown on each period.
