9781479378715: The Art of Tragedy and the Battle Against It

A new interpretation of tragedy - from our tragic poets' perspective - The Art of Tragedy & the Battle Against It explains how a tragedy works as art. It disagrees with how our literary critics have always explained a tragedy morally. It explains how a tragedy produces its dramatic and tragic impact from a violation of an audience's expectation, from a principle of dramatic incongruity. It disagrees with how our literary critics have always explained a tragedy instead as a natural result of a tragic hero's flawed activity, which satisfies an audience's expectation. It cites the dramatic situations of Aeschylus, Sophocles, Shakespeare, and Goethe, and Arthur Miller, in their tragic plays, contradicting the literary theories of Aristotle, Hegel and A C Bradley, in particular. It has full chapters on "The Tragic Flaw Concept," "The Natural Order of Things," "The Object of the Drama," "Tragic Pleasure," "Irony," "Catharsis," and "The Sublime." Timothy Sharkey (ALM, Harvard University) spent ten years researching, writing, and developing the arguments for The Art of Tragedy & the Battle Against It. He presents his arguments now, as an aesthetic interpretation of tragedy, in a way that completely contradicts and completely rejects our traditional, moral interpretation of tragedy, and its cornerstone, the tragic flaw concept.

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.A new interpretation of tragedy from our tragic poets perspective, The Art of Tragedy the Battle Against It explains how a tragedy works aesthetically, with a principle of dramatic incongruity. It disagrees with how our literary critics have traditionally explained a tragedy morally, with a logic of moral propriety. It disagrees with how our literary critics have traditionally explained a tragedy as a natural result of a tragic hero s flawed activity. It presents our tragic poets ideas about how a tragedy produces its dramatic impact instead, as art, with a principle of dramatic incongruity. It considers our tragic poets ideas about how a tragedy works with this principle of dramatic incongruity the best information we have about how a tragedy really works. Timothy Sharkey (ALM, Harvard University) spent ten years researching, writing and developing the arguments for The Art of Tragedy the Battle Against It in an effort to clean-up our confusion about tragic drama. He presents his arguments now, in a new interpretation of tragedy, in an aesthetic interpretation that has dramatic incongruity at its core, and he uses the comments of our tragic poets about how a tragedy works aesthetically, with a principle of dramatic incongruity - taken from the dialog of their plays - to support his arguments. He disagrees with our literary critics for this fundamental reason: they draw a link a link of act and consequence, or causal connection, between a tragic hero s catastrophe and the thing that he did wrong to cause it with his flaw, thereby precluding the way that a tragedy works aesthetically. They preclude the way that a tragedy produces its impact upon an audience by pushing the connection between act and consequence (between a tragic hero s heroic activity and his unfair treatment) apart dramatically, in the opposite direction. A tragedy produces its impact upon an audience in aesthetic terms by uniting unequal ingredients, not equal ingredients. This is what The Art of Tragedy the Battle Against It explains. It traces our literary critics resistance to it from Aristotle up to our own present day. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781479378715
