class. YOU WILL HAVE A QUIZ NEXT WEEK! Elements of a Tragedy First, this requires the fall of a regal person. Odds are, this will be a QUICK and SUDDEN fall. How do we see this in Hamlet?

Social and Cosmological Consequences Remember when we discussed consequences for disobeying the Divine Order? Not only would there be social ramifications (shunned from family, friends, etc.), but there would also be the potential for natural

disaster of some kind. Determinism vs. Autonomy Fate v. Free Will Basically, the development of events beyond a persons control, regarded as determined by a

supernatural power (FATE) versus free will Determinism v. Autonomy Tragedies MUST have a balance of the two. In tragedies, we must consider how much fate and free will affect the outcome of the work. Can a tragedy be ALL fate? ALL free will? Why or why not?

External Influences These, often supernatural influences, will often signify the role of FATE

What is one of the most significant traits of a tragedy?? DEATH Multiple deaths Many many deaths

Tragic Nobility The hero MUST accept some measure of responsibility and need SOME sense of a dignified ending. This means no begging, groveling, etc. The hero needs a dignified death

Tragedy Terms Catharsis The purging of emotions or relieving of emotional tensions (through art or music) Purging of pity and fear by the audience Fear comes from the justice that was carried out

Pity comes from the fact that those who died deserved it. Anagnorisis The critical moment of recognition or discovery Otherwise known as, tragic enlightenment

Its when the character realizes their part in the downfall Hamartia Tragic flaw The quality that will bring about ruin

Hubris Overreaching pride Pride that rivals the gods Notes are done! Again, KEEP THEM SAFE!
