It is interesting to note that a lot of our greatest tragedies come from quite moralistic times. Shakespeare is from the Elizabethian and Jacobian eras (and his greatness wasn’t realized until many years after). Death of A Salesman came out in the 50’s. And the works of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripedes were built to inject the masses with a sense of morals. Can’t have much tragedy without much morals. If everything is permitted there’s nothing to feel bad for. Everything is just some giant anti-climax. And that’s just boring.
