Death of Tragedy?
Richard Wheeler writes on his always excellent blog that the American can-do attitude doesn't lend itself well to producing tragic literature.
I always champion NEVER LET ME GO as a recent book that did that although it was British.
What books have you read you would deem a tragedy? NEXT, James Hynes would almost count although the tragedy did nor arise from the characters in the way I think Mr. Wheeler means.
Help me out here.
