The Poetics

by

The Poetics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most influential tracks in World Theatre, The Poetics is much mentioned but little read. It is credited as the source of the 'Aristotelian' doctrine of the Three Unities — of Time, Place, and Action — but in fact insists only on one of them. This brand new translation by Kenneth McLeish seeks to make this famous text as accessible as possible and to allow readers to experience Aristotle's arguments directly for themselves.

Synopsis:

New translation of Aristotle's keystone of Western dramatic criticism.
