Tragedy - Hamlet

            Arguably the best piece of writing ever done by .
             William Shakespeare, Hamlet the is the classic example of a .
             tragedy. In all tragedies the hero suffers, and usually .
             dies at the end. Othello stabs himself, Romeo and Juliet.
             commit suicide, Brutis falls on his sword, and like them .
             Hamlet dies by getting cut with a poison tipped sword. But .
             that is not all that is needed to consider a play a tragedy, .
             and sometimes a hero doesn't even need to die. Making .
             Not every play in which a Hero dies is considered a .
             tragedy. There are more elements needed to label a play .
             one. Probably the most important element is an amount of .
             free will. In every tragedy, the characters must displays .
             some. If every action is controlled by a hero's destiny, .
             then the hero's death can't be avoided, and in a tragedy the .
             sad part is that it could. Hamlet's death could have been .
             avoided many times. Hamlet had many opportunities to kill .
             Claudius, but did not take advantage of them. He also had .
             the option of making his claim public, but instead he chose .

             example, MacBeth was evil, yet he was a tragic hero, because .
             he had free will. He also had only one flaw, and that was .
             pride. He had many good traits such as bravery, but his .
             one bad trait made him evil. Also a tragic hero doesn't .
             have to die. While in all Shakespearean tragedies, the hero .
             dies, in others he may live but suffer "Moral Destruction". .
             In Oedipus Rex, the proud yet morally blind king plucks .
             out his eyes, and has to spend his remaining days as a .
             wandering, sightless beggar, guided at every painful.
             step by his daughter, Antigone. A misconception about .
             tragedies is that nothing good comes out of them, but it is .
             actually the opposite. In Romeo and Juliet, although both .
             die, they end the feud between the Capulets and the.
             Montegues. Also, Romeo and Juliet can be together in .
             heaven. In Hamlet, although Hamlet dies, it is almost for .
