Through an investigation of the literary doctrines and ideas of the chief critics of the eighteenth century, the author of this study traces the concept of tragic theory in a would-be age of neo-classicism. The innovational and revitalizing forces advocated for tragedy are stressed, but problems relating to subject matter, form, and rules within the genre are also covered.
