    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The heroes of Schiller’s and Alfieri’s plays experience the hubris and despair that arise from knowing that man is a “god banished into a world of worms.” In his study, Paolo Panizzo identifies a paradigm shift in the work of these late Enlightenment playwrights: from the old European idea of heroic stoicism to the new modern notion of heroic nihilism.
