Francesca Di Giacomo, Solène Martin-Bonneville, Hélène Lida-Pulik: the feeling of the tragic

Tragedy, which was born in Athens in the 5thcentury B.C., is characterized by its representation of reality’s problematic nature. In adolescence, the solving of sexuality’s enigma enables one to invest the idea that conflicting forces determine human behavior. By discovering the tragic dimension of existence, the adolescent can become aware of the perverse maneuvers that take us from the register of ambiguity to that of paradox and can commit an act of denunciation.
