Aristotle Poetics (Ann Arbor Paperbacks) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In one of the most perceptive and influential works of criticism in Western literary history, third century B.C. Greek philosopher Aristotle examines the literature of his time, describing the origins of poetry as an imitative art and drawing attention to the distinctions between comedy and tragedy. Aristotle helped establish the foundations of Western philosophy, and his influence is evident in philosophical thought today.

Synopsis:

A work of transcendent importance, both for the history of literary criticism and in its own right
