Daniel Sack (Section 01)
This course offers a survey of tragedy as a genre of theatrical representation, charting the development and crisis of the form. We will read texts from the classical and contemporary dramatic repertoire coupled with theoretical readings and documentation of performance. Readings may include plays by Sophocles, Euripides, Shakespeare, Racine, Buchner, Miller and Parks, among others. Attendance at weekly screenings and/or local performances is required.
