This study links classic tragedy and the modern period through the concept of madness, which has been an extensive preoccupation of both tragedians and modernists. Taking tragedy as a portrayal of the negation of an individual's sense of reality, the author provides readings of eight plays: Greek plays ("The Libation Bearers", "Antigone" and "The Bacchae"); Shakespeare ("Othello" and "Macbeth"); and modern tragedy ("Hedda Gabler", "A Streetcar Named Desire" and "Death of a Salesman").
