Project: On the postmodern status of classical tragedy & tragic vision: the novels, plays and theatre of Peter Verhelst

project duration
01-OCT-10 – 30-SEP-12
abstract
This project wants to examine the possibility of a tragic vision in the novels, plays and theatre performances of Peter Verhelst, focussing on the relation between such a vision and the ubiquitous themes and motifs from classical tragedy in his oeuvre. Aesthetic and ethic analyses will result in original contributions both to the interpretation of Verhelst and to the postmodern reception history of classical tragedy.
