Regarding catharsis as the defining function of tragedy (1449b 28), Aristotle expects highly of the educative function of poetic literature and claims the response of one who is drawn into the experience of a tragedy is first of all to feel fear and pity (1452a 2; 1452b 1; 1452b 34). In the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle holds moral virtue as the result of habit (1103a 15), and moderate sensibility (including pity and fear), as important moral virtues, can reasonably be cultivated, refined and elevated by habitual exposure to tragedy. According to Aristotle, the imitation of an action in a tragedy, by producing the fear and pity we feel, ends in a ritual purification of our feelings from some polluting impiety, thus to temper and reduce them to a moderate measure, and finally to be helpful for the social life. A Poetics of Postmodernism is essential reading for anyone interested in current studies of literature, art and "entertainment".' - Geoff Wade, Reviewing Psychology
