We might think we are through with the past, but the past isn’t through with us. Tragedy permits us to come face to face with the things we don’t want to know about ourselves, but which still make us who we are. It articulates the conflicts and contradictions that we need to address in order to better understand the world we live in. A work honed from a decade’s teaching at the New School, where ‘Critchley on Tragedy’ is one of the most popular courses, ‘Tragedy, the Greeks, and Us’ is a compelling examination of the history of tragedy.
