Asked in Macbeth
Which characteristic of a tragic hero does Macbeth have?
This tragic hero game goes like this. Some antique literary figure like AC Bradley makes a list of characteristics which a "tragic hero" is supposed to have and then we proceed to hammer and squeeze the character from the play until his has all of these characteristics. One of Bradley's "characteristics of a tragic hero" is that he has to be some kind of royalty. Yes, Macbeth fits this, but we have to ask ourselves whether tragedies cannot be written about non-royalty. Of course they can--witness Romeo and Juliet or Death of a Salesman. The tragic hero game is an arcane enterprise totally unrelated to why we enjoy tragic plays like Macbeth.
