Paul Woodruff: The Goat, or, Who is Sylvia? Notes Toward a Definition of Tragedy by Eward Albee; August 24.
A startling play by one of America's great playwright's about an architect at the peak of his career with a love interest he finds it hard to explain to others, a son who has problems of his own, and a wife who is not content with the situation. Readers take note: the literal meaning of "tragedy" is "goat-song."
A former Plan II director, Paul Woodruff has written on ancient Greek philosophy, ethics, and on the philosophy of theater. His hobbies include rowing, furniture-making, and music. He is currently Dean of the School of Undergraduate Studies.
