Anagnorısıs nedir?

Anagnorisis, bir oyun ya da eserin plot kurgusundaki bir karakter tarafından, karakter gelişimi ve plot kurgusunu değiştirecek büyüklükte kritik keşfin yapıldığı en önemli anlardan biridir. Genelde trajedide karşımıza çıkan bu terim catharsis ile karıştırılmamalıdır.

Anagnorisis is a moment in a play or other work when a character makes a critical discovery. Anagnorisis originally meant recognition in its Greek context, not only of a person but also of what that person stood for. Anagnorisis was the hero’s sudden awareness of a real situation, the realisation of things as they stood, and finally, the hero’s insight into a relationship with an often antagonistic character in Aristotelian tragedy.

Anagnorısıs examples ın Tragedy

In his Poetics, Aristotle defined anagnorisis as “a change from ignorance to knowledge, producing love or hate between the persons destined by the poet for good or bad fortune” . It is often discussed along with Aristotle’s concept of catharsis.

In the Aristotelian definition of tragedy, it was the discovery of one’s own identity or true character. For example; Cordelia, Edgar, Edmund in Shakespeare’s King Lear.

Aristotle was the first writer to discuss the uses of anagnorisis, with peripeteia caused by it. He considered it the mark of a superior tragedy, as when Oedipus killed his father and married his mother in ignorance, and later learned the truth.
