Topic Four: Charcterization, The Tragic Hero In broad terms, a “tragedy” is a work in which the main character is brought to ruin, usually as a consequence of a predominating weakness or tragic flaw. According to Aristotle, the fall of the protagonist creates pity and fear in the audience, and the release of these emotions provides catharsis. Typically, a tragic hero is a person who is highly renowned and prosperous, a description that does not apply to the aptly named Willy Loman. However, many critics have characterized Death of a Salesman as an American tragedy. In a well-organized essay, explain why the play should or should not be classified as a tragedy, supporting your position with specific evidence from the play.
