Shakespearean Tragedy

Objective for this Page: To urge you to read Hamlet.

Any tour of tragic drama should make a stop for Shakespeare, who represents the next big step in the history of this genre. If you've never read Hamlet, now is your chance. Find a print version or, if you prefer, click on the skull to go to an online version. (In fact, the skull will take you to a complete course on this play, including study questions and answers.) Use your back button to return to this page.

Okay, now let's see how Hamlet matches up with Aristotle's definition of a tragic hero. After all, about 2,000 years have gone by. Just how influential ARE those Greeks?
