About This Event

One way that people deal with grief and suffering is to turn to tragic stories for example and catharsis. The meanings of tragedy - on stage, music, and in life - are discussed by award-winning poet Clare Pollard, author of ‘Ovid’s Heroines’, and Dr Jennifer Wallace, Cambridge academic and author of the forthcoming ‘Tragedy Since 9 /11’.

Edited version broadcast on BBC Radio 3 during tonight’s interval
