What is Tetralogy in literature?

Definition: A tetralogy is a series of four related works of literature, such as novels, plays, or operas. The term is derived from the Greek word “tetralogia,” which originally referred to a set of four plays performed at the annual Athenian festival of Dionysia.

Tetralogies are often characterized by a unified theme, setting, or cast of characters, and they are designed to be read or performed as a single work. The individual works within a tetralogy may be interconnected by plot, character, or theme, and they may be designed to be read or performed in a particular order.

Tetralogies are common in literature and other forms of storytelling, and they are often used to explore complex themes or narratives that cannot be contained within a single work.

Example of Tetralogy:
