Humanist Tragedies offers a sampling of Latin drama from the Tre- and Quattrocento. These five tragedies--Ecerinis, Achilleis, Progne, Hyempsal, and Fernandus servatus--were nourished by a potent amalgam of classical, medieval, and pre-humanist sources. Humanist tragedy testifies to momentous changes in literary conventions during the Renaissance.
