    1. Tragedy: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions #131), Adrian Pooleعنوان: درآمدی بر تراژدی ؛ نویسنده: آدریان پول؛ مترجم: پدرام لعل بخش؛ تهران، افراز، 1386؛ در 181 ص؛ شابک: 9789642430932؛ موضوع: تراژدی قرن 21 م

    2. Not a topic I'd ever given much thought to, but the notion of tragedy is, I suppose, rather over-used today. The content was too dry beyond the initial concept for me to really get into, and it felt rather repetitive in places.

    3. well-written and intelligent, but for some reason I just could not find it in myself to take any interest in the subject (obviously, not necessarily a deficiency on the part of the author). If only Mr. Poole wrote more extensively - i.e. on topics other than tragedy, as he is really very good

    4. The first "A Very Short Introduction" book I've read, and an amazing introduction to the whole concept of them.

    5. Mình không đọc được cuốn sách này rồi, không hiểu gì hết. Nội dung đã không dễ mà dịch còn làm khó mình hơn nữa. Biết mặt dịch giả, bữa sau tránh.
