Tragedy: A Short Introduction reinvigorates the genre for readers who are eager to embrace it, but who often find the traditional masterpieces too distant from their own language and world.

  • Offers selected case studies that exemplify the compelling qualities of tragedy
  • Reviews the history of tragic performance and the qualities of the classic tragic hero, and clarifies the role of plot in defining traged
  • Analyzes the difference between a tragedy, a catastrophe, and a mere unhappy ending
  • Explores the past and future of the tragic form
