Gerald M. Garmon

Contents: This text studies the development of tragic realism in English drama starting with the plays of Aaron Hill and George Lillo, defining the term along the way. Novels of Samuel Richardson, William Godwin and others and the poetry of Crabbe and Wordsworth are also studied.
The works considered here have not otherwise been grouped as a type and under a generic rubric such as tragic realism.
