Enduring Understandings

  • In tragedies, the tragic hero is doomed from the beginning, falling victim to his/her tragic flaw.
  • Archetypes, like the tragic hero, are still relevant today in modern texts because they are realistic.
  • In order to fully analyze a text in literature, a reader must understand it, make connections within it, make connections outside of it, and analyze its relevance.
