Asked in Oedipus Rex
What evidence is there that 'Oedipus Rex' is a typical tragedy?
That his life takes an unfortunate turn is evidence that "Oedipus Rex" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.) is a typical tragedy. Specifically, a tragedy deals with the unfortunate turn that a hero's life takes. The description fits what happens to Theban King Oedipus. Oedipus is a hero, because he does great deeds and is the main character. But his life takes an unfortunate turn, and Oedipus ends up friendless, homeless, jobless, sightless and wifeless.

Asked in Books and Literature
Is there any tragedy in the novel Ethan Frome If there is what it is?
Ethan Frome is not a tragedy. The only thing you could say is a tragedy is that Ethan ends up living a horrible life and suffering the whole time. This novel is not a tragedy because a tragedy must contain a tragic hero, and this novel does not. Ethan is not a tragic hero, he doesn't learn from his mistakes, and he doesnt even take action. He wimps out and tries to kill himself. Some say that was taking action, but it was the easy way out. Ethan Frome is not a tragedy, it is just a cruel book that tells the tale of 3 peoples miserable lives.
