The Tragic Hero - Aberdeen School District / Overview

The Tragic Hero How is the tragic hero defined? The Tragic Hero is the PROTAGONIST He will make a mistake knowingly or unknowingly The mistake will involve a fundamental (basic) mistake about his place in the universe (destiny)

This is known as his TRAGIC FLAW The Tragic Flaw Often times this flaw comes from his arrogance He feels superior to any moral law (HUBRIS) By committing HUBRIS, the protagonist experiences the TRAGIC FALL The tragic fall is from confidence and

happiness to misery. FATE No matter what he does, the tragic hero protagonist is bound to commit his tragic mistake. He may try hard not to make the mistake, but will anyway. The sense of inevitability is what makes

the hero so tragic. SUFFERING The protagonist brings intense suffering. On self. On family. On society. On the army. On his men.

The suffering will be overkill. It wont seem to match the mistake. SUDDEN RECOGNITION The Protagonist will accept his suffering! Justified Meaningful Often only the reader will understand the suffering.

Sometimes the protagonist will not have learned from it BRING ABOUT ORDER Once the protagonist recognizes/understands his suffering, he admits that an external force orders the universe/judges him/punishes him

Then, he will seek physical and moral rightness/order TRANSCEND: RISE ABOVE He will now rise above his suffering He is heroic because he deals with his mistake with dignity (FINALLY!)

This may include death This will represent that the human experience is not about destiny the hero is indeed in control.
