Anna KAWALEC – The Genre of ‘Tragedy’ in the World of Cultural Coercion

Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN

The thesis of the article is simultaneously a postulate: The genre of tragedy provides a type of art indispensable to modern culture. Drawing on Irena Sławińska’s analyses of the tragedy, the author argues that today the genre in question succumbs to the pressure of the culture marked by suspension of all the borders and limits it finds inconvenient. The conception of the tragedy advanced by Irena Sławińska transgresses the narrow limits of the genre study approach and incorporates the cultural, philosophical and religious dimensions. Thus it shows the existentially relevant and culture creating value of the genre of tragedy, which is essentially a cathartic art.
