is tragedy embedded in Greek culture ?
okay we understand tragedy was formalized in plays from Aeschylus and others, as .. individuals whose behavior suggested they thought they were better than their unwashed human peers (more like the gods) … and their ?pride? would inevitably bring on their own downfall.
but is tragedy accepted any better, by one people rather than another ? do some populations become inured ?
