Tragedy, branch of drama that treats in a serious and dignified style the sorrowful or terrible events encountered or caused by a heroic individual. By extension the term may be applied to other literary works, such as the novel.. Although the word tragedy is often used loosely to describe any sort of disaster or misfortune, it more precisely refers to a work of art that probes with high. Also, just wanted to mention that it's true that some lyric poetry is in the artificial Doric-Ionic dialect (e.g. Pindar), but Homer's dialect is firmly early Ionic, with occasional Aeolic words, and the tragedy we have in complete form is all in Attic Greek, which is what most beginners' courses will teach you.

Greek Tragedy and the Modern World (Methuen). What is Tragedy? Critics have argued about its essence. Instead of abstract discussion, this book examines the plays of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, and discovers that they have very little in common with the Tragedies of Racine and Corneille, or other schools of drama to which critics have given the title of Tragedy. Epic poetry and Tragedy, Comedy also and Dithyrambic: poetry, and the music of the flute and of the lyre in most of their forms, are all in their general conception modes of imitation. They differ, however, from one: another in three respects,—the medium, the objects, the manner or mode of imitation, being in each case distinct.

This edition provides a full and representative selection of all early Greek lyric (omitting Pindar, who requires his own volume), elegiac and iambic poetry. First published in in the 'red Macmillan' series, it was reprinted by BCP in with addenda to the bibliography and an appendix reproducing a text of three substantial 'new' papyrus fragments by Archilochus, Stesichorus and Alcaeus. Indeed, Aristotle so respected the old masters of Greek poetry and theater that it is believed that he personally edited a copy of The Iliad for his student Alexander the Great, who reportedly carried it with him all over the world. Additionally, Aristotle believed that Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex was the best example of tragic theater and refers to it again and again within the course of his book.
