    A New Theory of Tragic Catharsis.Roy Glassberg - 2021 - Philosophy and Literature 45 (1):249-252.
    Aristotle's Poetics has come down to us in a form that is fragmented and incomplete. For example, its famous definition of tragedy begins by stating that it is a summation of what has come before:Let us now discuss Tragedy, resuming its formal definition, as resulting from what has been already said. Tragedy, then, is an imitation of an action that is serious, complete, and of a certain magnitude; in language embellished with each kind of artistic ornament, the several kinds being (...)

    Lyric Self-Fashioning: Sonnet 35 as Formal Model.Joshua Landy - 2021 - Philosophy and Literature 45 (1):224-248.
    Each of us is not just a set of actions, experiences, and plans but also a set of traits, capacities, and attitudes; we are as much our character as our life. And while story form can help unify a messy life, when it comes to a messy character, we may need something like the form of a poem. Could we model our self-conception, then, on a work like Sonnet 35? In finding deep-going unity—and even bittersweet beauty—beneath surface-level ambivalence, Sonnet 35 (...)

    Cassiopeia's Dust.Ron Louie - 2021 - Philosophy and Literature 45 (1):253-254.
    [A dilettante admires a constellation from a hot tub, and considers it the next day. Is it a prose poem, creative nonfiction, or "light" verse; phenomenology, astrophysics, metaphysics, or half-lit paronomasia?]A photon hit my retina. Again, again; others also hit. The sensation seemed continuous, albeit twinkling, rather than as discrete and separated points. It was like dust, but I didn't blink.It came from a thing I would call bright, in front of me, over my head, on a dark night; it (...)

    From Joyce to McKeon: The University, the Humanities, and the Becoming Teacher.Áine Mahon - 2021 - Philosophy and Literature 45 (1):255-267.
    In his seminal work, The Courage to Teach: Exploring the Inner Landscape of a Teacher's Life, Parker J. Palmer brings to critical attention not teaching methodologies or teaching techniques but the very identity and integrity of the person who teaches. In an extended meditation on the life of the teacher at all educational levels, Palmer chooses to foreground the significance of personhood, of self-knowledge and self-expression. The questions most commonly asked in teaching, he expands, relate to the "what," the "how," (...)

    "The Colour Out of Space": Lovecraft on Induction.Kieran Setiya - 2021 - Philosophy and Literature 45 (1):39-54.
    Argues for a reading of H. P. Lovecraft’s 1927 short story, "The Colour out of Space," as an affective response to the problem of induction. Lovecraft weighs the meaning of our epistemic frailty, drawing on George Santayana’s "Scepticism and Animal Faith." His writing elicits inductive vertigo, the fear that our concepts fail to carve nature at the joints.

    Intrinsic-Extrinsic Properties in Theater.Michael Y. Bennett - 2021 - Philosophy and Literature 45 (1):34-38.
    David Friedell has recently discussed the relationship between intrinsic and extrinsic properties of art, specifically in music. Friedell claims that normative social rules dictate who can change the intrinsic or extrinsic properties of a piece of music. I claim that in text-based theater—as a particular art form—the dividing line between intrinsic and extrinsic properties of a play is sometimes tenuous. This tenuousness is due to a play's bifurcated existence as a dramatic text and as many theatrical performances.
