 Aristotle -- Poetics [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Strangely, though, the Poetics itself is rarely read with the kind of sensitivity its critics claim to possess, and the thing criticized is not the book Aristotle wrote but a caricature of it.
The first scandal in the Poetics is the initial marking out of dramatic poetry as a form of imitation.
Within our small group of exemplary poetic works, there are two that do not have the tragic form, and hence do not concentrate all their power into putting us in a state of wonder, but also depict the state of wonder among their characters and contain speeches that reflect on it.

 Archival poetics
Aristotle's Poetics was already aware of this, as its author demonstrated in his theorization of catharsis as the wholesome effect of tragedy on its viewers.
Because it is metaphoric and conceptual, I will term this relationship "archival poetics," a term I coined in analogy to such poetics based on semiotic systems: narrative poetics; on foci of attention: a poetics of gender; on periods: Renaissance poetics; or conceptual metaphors such as mine: a poetics of place.
Read through archival poetics, the importance of this list, therefore, as a ground for a characterization of the place of narrativity in the establishment of generic conventions, cannot be over-estimated.

This translation of Aristotle's "Poetics" seeks to make it as accessible as possible without cutting or paraphrasing.
"Poetics" is credited as the source of the Aristotelian doctrine of the three unities - time, place and action - but in fact insists on only one of them.
Much of its analysis of tragedy is questionable, though the idea of catharsis, of being "purged" by our experience of tragedy, has taken hold of the modern mind.

 Aristotle Poetics: a bibliography
In any case, issues in the Poetics are so often interconnected that any attempt to classify items is bound to be arbitrary in some degree.
This bibliography does not pretend to provide a comprehensive record of everything that has been written on the Poetics (still less of everything relevant to the Poetics).
Greek characters in titles have been transliterated (for simplicity in on-screen viewing); unfortunately, this makes them indistinguishable from transliterations in title, and the user should check the original format before making a citation.

Aristotle once called politics the ability to control your environment, so perhaps it shouldn't be any wonder that technology has a way of turning the poetics of space into office politics.
In 1964, a French philosopher named Gaston Bachelard published a book, "The Poetics of Space," which attempted to show how our perceptions of houses and other shelters shape our thoughts, memories, and dreams.
This process of psychological projection is the "poetics" to which Bachelard's title refers.

 William of Moerbeke - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
But the main character, William of Baskerville, knew that Aristotle's Poetics had recently been translated directly from Greek into Latin by William of Moerbeke.
In Umberto Eco 's puzzle-mystery set in the later 13th century, The Name of the Rose, there is some debate among the monks about Aristotle's Poetics (Second Day: Prime).
They were already standard classics by the 14th century, when Henricus Hervodius put his finger on their enduring value: they were literal ( de verbo in verbo), faithful to the spirit of Aristotle and without elegance.

 Theatre Page for 200X @ Theatre with Anatoly
Aristotle, in The Poetics, said that plot is the soul of tragedy: it holds story together contains the incidents in the play, produces tragic effects, has the most tragic element (reversals, discoveries).
Plot or Action is one of three structural priciples, according to Aristotle.
Taken too literally, strict adherence to the Unities has often resulted in a stilted, artificial, and rigid drama which Aristotle would hardly have advocated.

 Oedipus as Tragic Hero
Oedipus as Tragic Hero In his famous "Poetics," the philosopher Aristotle laid the foundations for literary criticism of Greek tragedy.
As a tragic hero, Oedipus elicits the three needed responses from the audience far better than most; indeed, Aristotle and subsequent critics have labeled Oedipus the ideal tragic hero.
Aristotle's ideas revolve around three crucial effects: First, the audience develops an emotional attachment to the tragic hero; second, the audience fears what may befall the hero; and finally (after misfortune strikes) the audience pities the suffering hero.

 Chapter 14
Aristotle's attribution is nevertheless valuable because it implies an affinity of the Margites with Homeric composition that cannot be matched by the Cycle, which Aristotle does not even attribute to "Homer" (Poetics 1459b1).
The form in question is represented by the Homeric Margites, which shares with comedy the prime function of to geloîon (Poetics 1448b28-38).
Although Homeric Epos is not intrinsically suited for the comic element, Aristotle does find an attested poetic form, within the Homeric tradition,[1] that has a function parallel to that of comedy.

 Oedipus the King Oedipus Rex - tragoed Oedipus the King (Oedipus Rex) and Greek Tragedy
The three unities, noble character, and complex plot, are what make Oedipus Rex a good example of a tragedy in relation to Aristotle's Poetics.
Oedipus Rex fits the time duration that Aristotle says a good tragedy should have "for tragedy is especially limited by one period of the sun, or admits but a small variation from this period" (Poetics 10).
As defined by Aristotle, the three unities are the time, place and action of the tragedy.

 20th WCP: Poetry, History, and Dialectic
Aristotle claims that the art of dialectic sketched in the Topics contributes to philosophical knowledge because it can be used to find indemonstrable first principles from common opinions: "for, being capable of examining, dialectic has a path to the principles of all disciplines" (õB¤ £œŸæ›à¤) (I.2.101b3-4).
Aristotle never mentions a science of history; rather, he claims that history concerns the particular rather than the universal (9.1451b6-7), a sure indication that it is not a science, for science is of the universal.
There is, to be sure, what is typically called a "history" of poetry in chapters 4-5, Aristotle offers this account to distinguish difference of "manner" and it bears no resemblance to the setting out of common opinion that we typically find in the first books of his work.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2000.04.17
Keyt directs his commentary much more toward the sort of readers/listeners that Aristotle really seems to have had in mind, his students and colleagues at the Peripatos, who studied and discussed politics as a set of problems not unlike many others, such as in poetics, rhetoric, ethics, or even metaphysics, which they studied.
Keyt starts by correcting his own translation -- the aporia is a problem, not a puzzle and goes on to detail why Aristotle's solution to the problem, which entails seeking out the rarer of the qualities with regard to each office, is no solution to the problem he has stated.
Keyt very helpfully explains that Aristotle's "solution" amounts more to a principle of searching rather than of selection and that, despite the exclusivity of qualities stated in his aporia, Aristotle assumes their overlap in his solution.

 Shakespearean Tragedy
Classical Tragedy: According to Aristotle's Poetics, tragedy involves a protagonist of high estate ("better than we") who falls from prosperity to misery through a series of reversals and discoveries as a result of a "tragic flaw," generally an error caused by human frailty.
Both Senecan and Renaissance tragedy were influenced by the theory of tragedy found in Aristotle's Poetics.
Renaissance tragedy derives less from medieval tragedy (which randomly occurs as Fortune spins her wheel) than from the Aristotelian notion of the tragic flaw, a moral weakness or human error that causes the protagonist's downfall.

 Screenwriting Theories - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Screenwriter William Goldman is widely quoted as saying "Screenplays are structure." The first, most basic theory of screenwriting is Aristotle's Poetics, which explains the Three Act Structure.
Perhaps the most daunting theory of screenwriting comes from Pulitzer Prize-winning screenwriter David Mamet, who has advised that a screenwriter should simply read Aristotle's Poetics and write a lot until they get good at it.
Screenwriting Guru Syd Field wrote the seminal book Screenplay, and posited a new theory, which he called The Paradigm.
