Summary:
The term Tragedy refers to a theatrical practice that emerged in Ancient Greece, involving highly sophisticated dramas with serious themes, the scripts of which remain popular all over the world. The significance of Tragedy to theatre history owes much to The Poetics of Aristotle, a book of dramaturgy, theatre history, and play analysis, stating that Tragedies are designed to produce eleos (empathy) and phobos (fear).
