Oedipus And Othello: Protagonists As Tragic Figures
[ send me this essay ]
5 pages in length. As protagonists, both Oedipus and Othello ultimately ended up as tragic figures as a direct result of their inability to alter the course of their lives. Defining this particular concept calls for one's close interpretation of what the protagonist's role truly represents; with that, it becomes quite simple to understand how the lead characters can so easily slip into the tragic state they eventually inhabit. Through their difficult and sometimes life-changing experiences, both Oedipus and Othello come to recognize what it is their own self-knowledge has gained through their struggles. When assessing the integral components that comprised each character, it is important to determine just how much of their actions were motivated by fate or free will; summation of all applicable elements will likely lead one to conclude that determinism played a more significant role. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

Hemingway vs. Joyce / 'Just Representations of Nature'
[ send me this essay ]
