Summary
Modern critics have definite ideas about tragedy, maintaining that in a true tragedy fate must feel the resistance of the tragic hero's moral freedom before finally crushing him, thus generating our ambivalent sense of terrible waste coupled with spiritual consolation. Yet far from being a timeless truth, this account of tragedy only emerged in the wake of the French Revolution. This study demonstrates that this account of the tragic, which has been hegemonic from the early 19th century despite recent twists and turns of critical fashion, obscured an earlier poetics of tragedy that evolved from 1515 to 1795
