Overview: Tragedy in the Age of Oprah: Essays on Five Great Plays

In an era of Twitter and televised therapy, it may seem that classic theatre has no place in contemporary culture. Fed on the indulgences of celebrity driven and therapeutically maintained principles, how are modern audiences to understand and interpret classic works of drama? In Tragedy in the Age of Oprah:Essays on Five Great Plays , Louis Fantasia provides a provocative examination of therelationship between popular culture and classical tragedy. Makinga persuasive argument for the lessons tragedy has to offer today'saudiences, Fantasia examines five enduring works of theatre:Euripides' Medea , William Shakespeare's King Lear , Jean Racine's Ph?dre , Friedrich Schiller's Mary Stuart ; and Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey intoNight . Fantasia discusses in detail each of these plays, framingthem in a contemporary context that explores the suffering,responsibility, and identity that tragedy advocates. Each play is presented as an engaging, powerful encounter forthe reader, recreating as closely as possible the impact of a greatperformance. A unique look at the role classical theatre can andshould play in contemporary society, these essays reveal thelessons great plays have to teach us about ourselves. While thisbook will appeal to theatre professionals and students , Tragedy in the Age ofOprah will also resonate with general readers as well as anyoneinterested in theatre, literature, and culturalstudies.
