That tradition has been multiple and discontinuous, yet the term has often been used to invoke a powerful effect of cultural identity and historical continuity—"the Greeks and the Elizabethans, in one cultural form; Hellenes and Christians, in a common activity," as Raymond Williams puts it. In the wake of Aristotle's Poetics BCE , tragedy has been used to make genre distinctions, whether at the scale of poetry in general where the tragic divides against epic and lyric or at the scale of the drama where tragedy is opposed to comedy. In the modern era, tragedy has also been defined against drama, melodrama, the tragicomic, and epic theatre. More most read this week tagged "tragedy" Popular Tragedy Books.
