We attribute a tragic quality to many things - works, experiences, values, events - but we forget how modern this idea is. This book traces the rise of the tragic idea from early Romanticism to late Modernism. It maps one of the most absorbing philosophical conversations in modernity: the debate about the tragic meaning of life.
