An Analysis of Franz Grillparzer's Dramas: Fate, Guilt, and Tragedy
The tragedies of Grillparzer (and King Lear in the introduction) are used as models for discussion of a new theory of the tragic. Particular features of essential tragedies are an awareness of major fate and guilt concepts without adhering to only one, a merging of such concepts usually in irrational love, and a characteristic open end, which raises many questions, but does not give answers. Multiplicity of meanings is also reflected in the extreme range of contradictory interpretations of such tragedies, as in the case of Grillparzer.
