Tragedy in Transition is an innovative and exciting volume that explores the theory and practice of tragedy from the Greek tragedians to the present day, tracing important developments, continuities and discontinuities in the tragic tradition and exploring the afterlives of some of the most resonant tragic narratives. Central questions - the role of the gods for example - are examined in unexpected ways and less traditional topics - including childhood and science fiction - allow new questions to be opened up. The volume as a whole employs a range of theoretical and critical approaches to press the boundaries of tragedy, encouraging the reader to interrogate the genre's parameters and its significance. An ideal resource for students, this accessible anthology offers an up-to-date and lively critique of a wide range of topics in the field.
