Tragedy and Theory synopsis
Michel Zerba is involved in the current debates on the relationship between literature and theory by analyzing the responses of the theorists in the Western tradition to the tragic conflict. Given the centrality of conflict in the twentieth century's definitions of tragedy, Professor Zerba discusses the efforts of modern critics to locate Aristotle's poetics on the origins of this focus on the gods. By studying the moral and political ideas of poeticism, explain why Aristotle and the beneficiaries of the Renaissance and the Neoclassic rule have excluded the conflict from their accounts of the tragedy. The book says that the critical element first appears in a dramatic critique of nineteenth-century romantic theories in the Semitic theme, and more influential in Hegel's lectures on drama and history.
This turning point is examined in the history of speculation about the tragedy with attention to a dynamic between the methodological objectives of the theory and the destructive conflicts of the tragic plays. In the writings of the various classical and Renaissance theorists, Professor Zerba reveals that the conflict in the tragedy undermines the expectations of cohesion, closure and moral stability on which the theory rests on the principles of a dramatic system.
From Aristotle to Hegel, the philosophical interest of securing these principles determines attitudes towards conflict. Originally published in 1988.
