"Rebecca Bushnell's Tragedy: A Short Introduction is a brisk guide for the student reader. Bushnell's approach is not only comparative, but even eclectic, as may befit the often rather unwieldy subject of tragedy ... the reader will find helpful directions to further reading, but as a concise study, the real strength of this book lies in its close, attentive engagement with canonical texts." (Oxford Journal, 1 March 2011)
