20 edit h hall The Philosophical Signature One working definition of tragedy, therefore, is that it constitutes the expression of an enquiry into suffering, an aesthetically articulated question mark written in pain. ’’6 For tragedy, while representing an instance of suffering in dramatic form, asks why it has occurred. It is not a matter of whether the suffering is of a particular type or quality: neither the Greeks nor Shakespeare’s audiences are likely to have drawn much distinction between pitiful and ‘‘tragic’’’ agony.
The Trojan women are, from a Sartrean Existential perspective, already dead, since death is a permanent state of denial of choice, ‘‘an absence of the defining human characteristic of freedom’’ (O’Donohoe 2005: 57). It is in this sense that Sartre’s version is most innovatively philosophical; his gods pass the death sentence on Greeks and Trojans alike in the opening scene, thus removing all hope, which is the Sartrean precondition of meaningful human action or existence. Sartre’s old Marxist allegiances mean also, however, that it turns out that it is the gods who do not exist at all, since they are only sustained in being through human ideological activity.
