Jul 08, 2009

This is going to seem awfully blase and simplistic to anyone with any background at all in english studies or literature. But hey, it was the first time anyone really bothered to examine how drama and poetry works at all. Like nearly everything Aristotle wrote it has this ur-scientific, systematized style, which while it might work for his more philosophical and science oriented work, here it feels a bit grating.
