A tragic hero is a literary character who makes a judgement error that inevitably leads to his or her own destruction. Every Greek tragedy must have a tragic hero. In Sophocles's play, Antigone, that tragic hero is Creon. He possesses the tragic flaws of excessive pride and a oversized ego. This causes the tragic reversal that leads to his emotional ruin with not only himself but also his family.
In the play Macbeth, Macbeth is a perfect version of an Aristotelian tragic hero due to his change in nobility, ignorance, and poor judgement. Macbeth fits the definition of an Aristotelian tragic hero by his nobility turning into excessive pride due to his felonious actions, but after his fall from grace he becomes conscious of his lost virtue and he begins to regain his
They are both flawed in their excessive pride, or hubris. This flaw is pointed out by many in the play, but only one character fits all the traits of a true tragic hero. Creon has a tragic flaw which leads to his downfall, and he realizes his faults in the end. Although Antigone has a very tragic ending, she does not fit all the traits of a tragic hero. Antigone's tragic flaw made her refuse to stop what she planned to do, even if death was the consequence.
An example of a real-life Shakespearean tragic hero is Pete Rose, a famous baseball player from 1963-1986, and manager from 1984-1989. All tragic heroes have a noble characteristic, which is portrayed as being upper class and having elevated character. Pete rose satisfies both of these criteria because he was a famous baseball player, and achieved this status by having an unmatched work ethic. Unfortunately, his hamartia, or tragic flaw, lies in his hubris, or excessive confidence and pride. These flaws lead to his mistake of betting on his own team while managing, which ultimately led to his downfall.
While Shakespeare's, Romeo and Juliet is one of the most iconic archetypes in history; people can agree that supporting character, Mercutio, was a definite favorite with his boisterous attitude and loyal heart, he quickly gained our love as the story went on. As the play went on, and Mercutio’s death took place, we can see that him dying was a big part in the continuance of the play. If Benvolio and he hadn’t pushed Romeo in to so much, if Romeo hadn’t fallen in love with Juliet, or if Mercutio would have listened to Benvolio, then maybe the brazen teenager would have lived. At the beginning of the play, Romeo was depressed and very gloomy due to the fact that his crush, Rosaline, didn’t return his affection. Of course, Mercutio wasn’t having
Dick’s affairs, his irrational behavior, and problematic characteristics undeniably play a role in his destruction.

In the story of Macbeth, the protagonist is seen to have all the characteristics of a tragic hero. Unlike Lady Macbeth, Macbeth is a prime example of a tragic hero, not only because he is the main character of a tragedy, but because he was at first a noble and great character, who soon turned out to be average, his downfall was caused by his own flaws (mainly due to his excessive pride), and he gathered some sympathy from the audience. Firstly, a characteristic of a tragic hero is someone of high status, who is not perfect so that
Then later as time goes by he gradually realizes his mistakes and finds the world around him crumble. Tragedy depicts the downfall of a good person through some fatal error or misjudgment, leading to his suffering on the component of the protagonist and arousing pity and fear on the component of the audience. Therefore all tragic heroes make mistakes and so does Creon, Although Antigone is believed to
