A New Theory of Tragedy

Friday 5th October 2018

Old Member Eva Wagner (1962) is the proud author of A New Theory of Tragedy: Storm and Stress Drama.

This is a new theory of tragedy. In particular, it is an investigation of fate and guilt concepts as rationalisations of irrational tragic reality, reflected generally in Geistegeschichte, then in literary tragedies of the Western world and eventually in Storm and Stress dramas. They summarize, contradict, and to some extent predict all major "solutions" to tragic insolubility, as illustrated in the main sections: Greek, Christian, and Enlightenment world Views.
