"The Poetics" is a book written by the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle, which is believed to have been composed around 335 BCE. The book is an important work of literary criticism and is considered one of the earliest surviving discussions of dramatic theory. In "The Poetics," Aristotle explores the nature of tragedy and offers insights into the elements that make up successful works of literature, such as plot, character, language, and spectacle. He discusses the purpose and function of tragedy, and argues that its ultimate goal is to elicit a cathartic response in the audience. Aristotle's ideas on the principles of drama and the nature of tragedy have had a profound impact on Western literary theory and have influenced the works of countless writers, playwrights, and critics over the centuries.
