Periferia de Oscar Viale: una tragedia en las margenes
MetadataShow full item record
his paper focuses on the play Periferia, written in 1982 by the Argentinean playwright Oscar Viale, as a contemporary and local re-writing of the tragedy genre, developed in antique Greece. It is from this point of view of a new approach to an old tradition that this play is taking into consideration. We will consider concepts such as hamartia, hybris, catharsis and pathos and how these are bring-up-date by the text. His protagonist, on the other hand, is viewed as an anti-hero, someone alienated by the events, that can’t stop his tragic and definitive destiny.
