In this absorbing, pleasurable, and illuminating book Paul Hammond reveals the underlying strangeness of the world inhabited by the tragic protagonist. Tracing webs of meanings-of single words and word-clusters-he explores tragedy's uncertainty about the boundaries of the self, and the boundaries of the human. The Strangeness of Tragedy features thoughtful and probing readings of plays from classical, renaissance, and neo-classical literature. Book jacket.
