about this item

In its analysis of German Roman tragedy, the study examines a genre now largely forgotten but once extremely popular in the German-speaking world from 1800 to 1900. Considering its functional transformations through time, Roman tragedy can be viewed not only as a theatrically effective mass spectacle but also with regard to its scholarly interplay with humanistic learning and its use as a medium for political reflection.
