What is a tragic hero? A tragic hero a person of high rank or quality that suffers a downfall as a result of his or her tragic flaw. These main characters Robert Peace( The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace- Hobbs) , Macbeth ( Shakespeare) and Okonkwo ( Chinua Achebe) were the tragic heros in their own story. Each character started off doing simple task then evolved into doing things that were much bigger that came with a consequence along the way. These men built character amongst themselves once they had to come face to face with their own internal conflict and to reality.
In the beginning of the play wee see Willy’s sons, Biff and Happy, on the same path as their father. Towards the end of the play however, we can grasp the fact that Biff is not on the same road as Happy and Willy. Through many events in the play Biff realized that not only did Willy have his dream backwards but he too was trying to pursue something he didn 't appreciate. The play, Death of a Salesman, is directly related to the quote “You stuff someone into the American Dream, and it becomes a prison” said by Craig L. Thomas. Willy Loman is the best example for someone being stuck in the so called American dream prison.
In a story a character can come be static(sometimes you have to wait till the end to make sure they are though). If they’re a static character they do not change or change just a bit. For example in the book Ironman Mr.S says “I told you because you asked. I’m not an activist-my seual prefences is only a part of who I am.”(pg.152). Mr.S has stayed to the fact that if no one asks he won’t tell them he is homosexual, which makes him a static character.
In The Dead Gabriel is married to Gretta, and has put in years of his life and love into his marriage and cannot replace them. The little boy is young and can grow as a person and realize the true meaning of love which will lead him to find his person and do the adventure he was so willing to do when he was young. Gabriel can’t turn back the clock to the time where Gretta met him, or back to the time where she met Michael. He can divorce her, but imagine the pain and heartbreak that he will go through. Not just that, but the talk that will come from his family and friends.
In fact, many people seem to agree with this. On the State University of New York at Oswego’s website, Mallory Eckert observes that, “Poe 's life had many hardships that inspired his work. Readers can clearly see the connection to Poe and the other people in his life to the characters in his poems and stories. Many of Poe 's works may seem normal at first, but almost always end in tragedy, just as his life did. He did not look to any literary works for inspiration, and acted more from his imagination and the experiences he went through.
Shakespeare uses these mental and psychological events that happened to Ophelia to give the reader an excitement, suspense, and climax to read. Not only did Ophelia have internal events that led to external action, so did Hamlet. Waid 3 Hamlet went through monumental changes in his life that made him think about life in general. He was to the point where he thought it would just be easier to die than to live with all these struggles. Hamlet’s uncle Claudius killed his father, which put a huge burden on his shoulders because he loved his father so much.
Hamlet’s Tragic Flaw William Shakespeare is seen as one of the best play writers to this day. He was able to make tragedies and explain human emotion in a way that is still relevant today. Hamlet is a character that has humanity and is a strong character since he values human life. Unfortunately, this also leads to his indecisiveness and inability to act, which ultimately is his tragic flaw. Hamlet first shows indecisiveness toward killing himself and can’t decide whether or not life is worth it.
Asif Ali Ruperdra Guha Majumdar, Associate Professor, DU IA Term Paper Semester - IV 19th April 2016 Tragedy of a common man in Mother Courage and Her Children: From the spectacle of Realism In the essay "Tragedy and the Common Man," the author Arthur Miller puts forward a very strong argument in the favor of a common man’s suitability for being the hero of a tragedy. And this argument was based on some common points like, such plays can influence us greatly for they contain various elements like the fear of displacement, the tragedy of the difference between who we are and who we wish to be in this world. “Among us today this fear is strong, and perhaps stronger, than it ever was. In fact, it is the common man who knows this fears the best.” According to Miller a common layman is well aware of fear and understands it well hence qualifies for the tragedy. A man’s quest for morality which is moreover a subjective matter, the point of concern over here is the extent to which he would go to reach that point of morality.
The intention of the play Everyman is to teach a lesson and confess the truth at the end. And it tells clearly that every human being in their life-time do make a lot of mistakes. What is most important is that good deeds never leave Everyman, but it accompanies him even to his grave. This essay focuses on how Everyman lost his way and got into many temptations, judgment, abandoned by friends, and repentance, because Everyman realizes where he went wrong. Everyman play is a bit different from other well-known plays, because of its setting and style.
Macbeth, a Shakespearean tragedy about overgrowing pride and ambition, exhibits a theme of loss, and how each individual handles it in their own unique way. Even though Shakespeare demonstrates this through many characters, there is one which stands out remarkably: Macduff. Macduff is an intriguing character in this play, because he is the foil character of the protagonist, and yet we still root for him, due to Macbeth 's harm inflicted upon Macduff which grows over the course of the play. After Macduff experiences separation from his friends, family, and king, he gains the emotional courage required to make everything right. In act II, scene III, Macduff unfortunately is the one to discover the body of King Duncan, and clearly grieves heavily for the loss.

There next to the Queen lay a newborn child; his soft silky hair shone like a constellation in the night sky, with a cry so beautiful it filled her with joy before she blacked out.

Artie alludes to the difficulty he has writing the book he intended for his readers. Comparably, the holocaust is not only specific to a certain group, race, culture, or community but to every single man or women within that group affecting their ability to move forward and prosper as
One fourth of the way around the world, away from Darfur is a similar problem concerning the Hmongs. Hmongs have resided in southern Asia for ages. They have done many great and if America wins, they would be responsible of building schools and sending teachers over to educate the Hmongs’ way of living. If America loses the war in Vietnam, Americans promised to welcome Hmong people over to America to escape any further harm or problems. Not many people know about this promise, but Hmong parents remind their kids everyday that if their children were to go to school and have racial discrimination against their language or culture, their children should remember the great things they did for America and challenge the saying that Hmongs should return to their homeland.
