  18. Aristotle Poetics

    Aristotle Poetics

    SKU: 0260


    Aristotle Poetics. In his near-contemporary account of Greek tragedy, Aristotle examines the dramatic elements of plot, character, language and spectacle that combine to produce pity and fear in the audience, and asks why we derive pleasure from this apparently painful process. Taking examples from the plays of Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides, the Poetics introduces into literary criticism such central concepts as mimesis ("imitation), amartia ("error), and katharsis ("purification"). Aristotle explains how the most effective tragedies rely on complication and resolution, recognition and reversals, centering on characters of heroic stature, idealized yet true to life. One of the most powerful, perceptive and influential works of criticism in Western literary history, the Poetics has informed serious thinking about drama ever since. Malcolm Health's lucid English translation makes the Poetics fully accessible to the modern reader. It is accompanied by an extended introduction, which discusses the key concepts in detail and includes suggestions for further reading. From Penguin Classics. 144 pages. Paperback.

    One of the most universally studied of the English classics, Beowulf is considered the finest heroic poem in Old English.

Beowulf first rescues the royal house of Denmark from two marauding monsters, then returns to rule his people for 50 years, ultimately losing life in a battle to defend the Geats from a dragon's rampage. The poem combines mythical elements, Christian and pagan sensibilities, and actual historical figures and events in a narrative that ranges from vivid descriptions of fierce fighting and detailed portrayals of court life to earnest considerations of social and moral dilemmas. Originally written in Old English verse, it is presented here in an authoritative prose translation by R. K. Gordon. Reprint from Anglo-Saxon Poetry, J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd., London, 1926. Learn More
