Product Details

Product Description


"A serious, unorthodox book on a much vexed subject. Is tragedy an event in our lives, or a literary form, or a body of dogma? Williams' analysis here is especially fine." (New Society)

"An impassioned, powerful book." (The Guardian)

From the Back Cover

Modern Tragedy, first published in 1966, is a study of the ideas and ideologies which have influenced the production and analysis of tragedy. Williams sees tragedy both in terms of literary tradition and in relation to the tragedies of modern society, of revolution and disorder, and of individual experience. Modern Tragedy is available only in this Broadview Encore Edition, now edited and with a critical introduction by Pamela McCallum.
