How are Poetics and Bourgeois Theatre similar to each other

From the outset, Aristotle’s Poetics was one of the few sources after which Hollywood’s screenwriters have been modeling their scripts (ever since the 1920s). Besides Greek classical tragedies (and Aristotle’s treatise on them), the other theatrical source Hollywood has modeled itself after the most is the bourgeois theater.

The Big Heat 1953 is one of the most typical examples of classical Hollywood. Some aspects of it have been clearly drawn from classical tragedy, while some others from bourgeois theater.

The paper should single out the aspects that can be linked to the Poetics as well as the ones coming from bourgeois theater. Some mention should also be made to the way these aspects interact with one another, and to Hollywood’s overall conception of mimesis as can be drawn from the elements gathered in your paper.

The Wire too has frequently been called a “modern-day Greek tragedy”; it also has plenty of elements coming from bourgeois theater. For your paper, you also to add some remarks on how The Wire incorporates these two strands. A suitable starting point would be this analysis (, yet for the most part you should rely on autonomous research.
