VISIONS OF TRAGEDY TRAGIC STRUCTURING IN ATTIC BLACK-FIGURE REPRESENTATIONS OF THE STORY OF TROILOS

stem .,pa-y- conveyed a primary denotation of dramatic performance. Yet Aristotle

the nature of tragedy, he is at pains to describe the best kind of tragic figure and the
best kind of plot-structure in general terms.
