Summary "Aristotle's Poetics is a brief and probably fragmentary work on the art of poetry and constitutes one of the earliest surviving discussions of literary theory. Along with a substantial introduction aimed at students of literature, this edition includes a revision of the translation by James Hutton, with a note on the translation and a glossary of terms. "Ancient Sources: Epic and Dramatic" includes a number of excerpted selections from ancient Greek epic and tragedy. "Ancient Sources: Philosophical and Rhetorical" draws from other works by Aristotle and Aristotle's teacher, Plato. "Early Modern and Modern Discussions" provides an overview of commentary on Poetics, and includes pieces that analyze the texts through dramatic, literary, and philosophical lenses. A Selected Bibliography is also included." -- Provided by publisher.
