An analysis of Aristotle's "Poetics," this work attempts a sustained interpretation of the text, contending that it states a challenging theory of poetic art. It hints at a theory of mimetic art, and represents Aristotle's philosophical urge to work out a secularized understanding of Greek tragedy.
Stephen Halliwell is Professor of Greek at the University of St Andrews. He is the author of "The Poetics of Aristotle: Translation and Commentary," also published by BCP, and "Greek Laughter: A Study of Cultural Psychology from Homer to Early Christianity."
