About this product
- DescriptionThis book refutes the claim that tragedy is longer a vital and relevant part of contemporary American theatre. Tragedy in the Contemporary American Theatre examines plays by multiple contemporary playwrights and compares them alongside the works of America's major twentieth-century tragedians: Eugene O'Neill, Arthur Miller, and Tennessee Williams. The book argues that tragedy is t only present in contemporary American theatre, but issues from an expectation fundamental to American culture: the pressure on characters to create themselves. Tragedy in the Contemporary American Theatre concludes that tragedy is vital and relevant, though t always in the Aristotelian model, the standard for traditional evaluation.
