Jennifer Kate Hudson
Tragic Hero by: Sydney Boisselle
What's a tragic hero?
2. Though the tragic hero is great, he/she is not perfect. We should see in him or her, someone who is essentially like us (flawed), although perhaps elevated to a higher position in society.
3. The hero's downfall, is partially his/her own fault. In fact, the tragedy is usually triggered by some error of judgment (called ham atria, meaning "tragic flaw") or some character flaw that contributes to the hero's lack of perfection. Often the character's hamartia involved hubris (which is defined as "a sort of arrogant pride or over-confidence")
4. The hero’s misfortune is not wholly deserved. Punishment is often more than the crime.
5. The hero’s fall is not pure loss. There is some increase in awareness, some gained self-knowledge, some discovery on the part of the tragic hero.
6. Though it is sad, the tragedy does not leave its audience in a state of depression.
