Poetics - Aristotle, Samuel Henry Butcher, Francis Fergusson Demystifies great plays and epic poetry by breaking them down into their necessary parts and describing what works, what doesn't and why. For that, five stars, but there is one thing I can't let slide.

"Even a woman may be good, and also a slave; though the woman may be said to be an inferior being, and the slave quite worthless."
