  • Changes Some Of Aristotle's Rules
    1,588 words
    Aristotle's Rules For Tragedy Laid Down In Poetics As They Apply To Blood Relations By Sharon Pollock Aristotle could be considered the first popular literary critic. Unlike Plato, who all but condemned written verse, Aristotle breaks it down and analyses it so as to separate the good from the bad.

  • World Of Troilus Cressida
    1,001 words
    The Bell Shakespeare Company's play Troilus+Cressida Directed by Michael Bogdanov is an example of the many re-skinned Shakespearean plays that emerge out of obscurity to challenge social mores in modern society.
