Product Description
A key document for teaching the characteristics of a Shakespearean tragic figure. I begin this unit by narrating to the class a little story about tragedy from James Joyce's Portrait of the Artist, then divide the class into groups to discuss among themselves why the girl in Joyce's story is NOT a tragic figure. Groups then report to the class what they believe is an important characteristic of a tragic figure, a member from each group-or the teacher-writing these points on the board. Students enjoy this discussion and find it an invaluable asset. Depending on the strength of the class, I also like to give the Greek spelling of the Aristotelian terms and their meanings. Included in this updated document is a graph of the structure of a Shakespearean tragedy as well as detailed definitions with examples of key elements in a Shakespearean play.Michael CummingsShakespeare: the Characteristics of a Tragic Figure by Michael Cummings is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 2.5 Canada License.
