Riassunto: This book addresses the question of the legacies of Nietzsche's theories of tragedy as literary genre and of the tragic as ontological concept. Although The Birth of Tragedy was the most seminal in this sense, Nietzsche's followers also read, misread, and appropriated ideas on the tragic in his later works. Taking seriously the call for the rebirth of the tragic spirit in culture generally, dramatists, poets, novelists, philosophers, film makers, and theorists not always acknowledging a debt to Nietzsche incorporated the Dionysian and the Apollinian, as well as other aspects of Nietzsche's thinking on tragedy, into their own works. This volume gives a sampling of the multifaceted and widespread impact of this aspect of Nietzsche's thought in Eastern as well as in Western Europe and in the United States.
L'autore: Mary Ann Frese Witt is professor emerita in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at North Carolina State University.
