A Companion to Tragedy is an essential resource for anyone interested in exploring the role of tragedy in Western history and culture. The Companion is based on the premise that the genre of tragedy is inseparable from history, insofar as it was born in the Greek city-state, and its life has been intertwined with the fate of dynasties, revolutions, and crises of social change. At the same time, this historical approach is complemented by consideration of philosophical and religious readings of tragedy.

Featuring essays by renowned scholars from multiple disciplines, the volume is structured into two parts: the first set of essays on “tragic thought” considers interpretations of tragedy through religion, philosophy, and history; while the second set on “tragedy in history” traces the historical development of tragedy from classical Greece to modernity. Together, they demonstrate how the practice of reading tragedy has changed radically in the past two decades.
