    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This study refutes the notion that there could be no sense of tragedy in the Middle Ages because of the prevailing Christian worldview. The motivating force of misfortunate in the courtly epic shows clear congruities with various theories of tragedy. Using a narratological approach, the author reformulates the concept of the tragic for the field of medieval studies.
