The Poetics of Aristotle

The Poetics of Aristotle $23.99

translation & Commentary Stephen Halliwell

Published by Duckworth

This new translation, which incorporates the results of the best modern work on the Poetics, is aimed at those (especially students) who want a reliable version of Aristotle's ideas together with concise and stimulating guidance to their significance. Each chapter offers a running commentary which explains the structure and detail of the argument, attempts to provoke further thought about the work's strengths and weaknesses, and offers some suggestions on relating the Poetics to later stages of literary theory and practice. An Introduction discusses the influence of the Poetics on the development of literary critical terminology and thinking in England since the 16C. It also contains a Glossary and an annotated bibliography
