Rethinking Tragedy book.

This groundbreaking collection provokes a major reassessment of the significance of tragedy and the tragic in late modernity. A distinguished group of scholars and theorists extends the discussion of tragedy beyond its usual parameters to include film, popular culture, and contemporary politics. Seven new essays-as well as eight essays originally published in a New Literary History special issue on tragedy-address important, previously neglected areas of tragedy and postcolonial criticism.

Rethinking Tragedy (Johns Hopkins, 2008) more. Cultural critics and sociologists have been remarkably quiet on the subject of romantic love. Literature After Feminism (Chicago UP, 2003) more. This is all the more surprising when one thinks about its absolute centrality to contemporary media culture.

Her most recent book, The Limits of Critique (Chicago Uttar Pradesh, 2015), is on the hermeneutics of suspicion as mood and method. rnShe has also published articles in numerous essay collections and in such scholarly journals as PMLA, Signs, New Literary History, Modernism/Modernity, Cultural Critique, Theory, Culture and Society, and New Formations.

This groundbreaking collection provokes a major reassessment of the significance of tragedy and the tragic in late modernity. A distinguished group of scholars and theorists extends the discussion of tragedy beyond its usual parameters to include film, popular culture, and contemporary politics.

Seven new essays―as well as eight essays originally published in a New Literary History special issue on tragedy―address important, previously neglected areas of tragedy and postcolonial criticism. The new material explores the tragic dimensions of popular culture, the relationship between tragedy and pity, and feminism's avoidance of the tragic, and includes an incisive history of tragic theory.

Classic and cutting-edge, this collection offers a provocative, accessible, and comprehensive treatment of tragedy and tragic theory.
