Female Acts In Greek Tragedy from the Author: Helene P. Foley. Although Classical Athenian ideology did not permit women to exercise legal, economic, and social autonomy, the tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides often represent them as influential social and moral forces in their own right. Scholars have struggled to explain this seeming contradiction. Helene Foley shows how Greek tragedy uses gender relations to explore specific issues in the development of the social, political, and intellectual life in the polis. She investigates three central and problematic areas in which tragic heroines act independently of men: death ritual and lamentation, marriage, and the making of significant ethical choices. Her anthropological approach, together with her literary analysis, allows for an unusually rich context in which to understand gender relations in ancient Greece. This book examines, for example, the tragic response to legislation regulating family life that may have begun as early as the sixth century. It also draws upon contemporary studies of virtue ethics and upon feminist reconsiderations of the Western ethical tradition. Foley maintains that by viewing public issues through the lens of the family, tragedy asks whether public and private morality can operate on the same terms. Moreover, the plays use women to represent significant moral alternatives. Tragedy thus exploits, reinforces, and questions cultural clichés about women and gender in a fashion that resonates with contemporary Athenian social and political issues.

The Origin Of Hardy S Tragic Vision from the Author: Rıza Öztürk. “Dr Rıza Öztürk’s new book, The Origin of Hardy’s Tragic Vision, is a lucid explanation of the most important aspect of novelist Thomas Hardy’s worldview – the destruction of self. Dr Öztürk gets to the core of Hardy’s ‘tragic vision’ – evident in the novelist’s interpretation of the dramatic interplay between character and circumstance. To what degree either element of character or circumstance weighs in the tragic equation is the subject of discourse in Öztürk’s book, a significant acquisition for students and scholars of Hardy, Victorian literature and culture, or the history of the English novel. This study of Hardy tackles the novelist’s formulation of tragedy as an individual’s ‘natural aim or desire’ – and attempts to answer the important question concerning who or what is responsible for such appetite. The Origin of Hardy’s Tragic Vision can serve as a handbook in the study of tragedy, from the ancient Greek notions to manifestations in late nineteenth century novelists (with reference to modern novelists and dramatists, such as D. H. Lawrence and Henrik Ibsen). Öztürk’s analysis, from the impulse of character in The Mayor of Casterbridge, through the envelope of circumstance in Tess of the D’Urbervilles, culminates comprehensively in his discussion of the depletion of life in Jude the Obscure. As a novelist familiar with the ideas of Schopenhauer and Darwin, Hardy’s tragic vision encompasses a brutally stark statement about the reality of life itself, and this assessment is captured brilliantly in Rıza Öztürk’s important book. Regarding tragedy from the technical elements to the thematic, to its special attention in terms of feminism and illustrations of the absurd in Jude the Obscure, there is no question that The Origin of Hardy’s Tragic Vision fills the need for newer interpretations of a vital figure in English literature who straddles both the Victorian and modern eras.” – Gregory F. Tague, PhD, Professor of English, St. Francis College, New York; author of Character and Consciousness (2005) and Ethos and Behavior (2008); editor of the ASEBL Journal
