MEDIA REVIEWS

'Angela Curran's Routledge Philosophy Guidebook to Aristotle and the Poetics is as complete an introduction to this foundational text as one might wish. Curran outlines the book with great clarity, situates it within Aristotle's corpus, explores interpretative debates about key issues, like catharsis, and connects Aristotle's views to contemporary debates in aesthetics. But not only does Curran report on current debates, she enters them with originality and insight. Thus, not only is this excellent book perfect for undergraduate and graduate students, but for experts as well.' - Noel Carroll, Graduate Center, CUNY, USA

'Overall, Curran has written a very fine, scrupulous guide to Aristotle's Poetics. Her reading of the text is close, and her familiarity with the scholarship is evident from lengthy works cited and recommended reading lists at the end of each chapter. Curran's guidebook will prove a valuable supplement to courses that, either in part or in whole, take up Poetics. Scholars specializing in Aristotle, philosophy of art, or classics will also want to have Curran's erudite text at their disposal.' - CHOICE
