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.

About the Author:

Raymond Williams (1921–1988) was one of the twentieth century’s foremost literary and cultural critics. His work bridged the divides between aesthetic and socio-economic inquiry, between Marxism and mainstream liberal thought, and between the modern and post-modern world. Among his other major works are The Long Revolution (also available from Broadview Press) and Keywords.

Pamela McCallum is Professor of English at the University of Calgary.
