Cascetta Annamaria, Modern European Tragedy

Modern European Tragedy


The idea of the tragic has permeated Western culture for millennia, and has been expressed through theatre since the time of the ancient Greeks. In this book, Annamaria Cascetta addresses the question of how the twentieth century - one of the most violent periods of human history - dealt with the foundamental structure that is the tragic. Examining the consciousness of this era through in-depth analysis of some of its most outstanding texts, including works by Ibsen, Brecht and Beckett, Modern European Tragedy draws a vivid picture of the development of tragedy in the twentieth century.
