Thinking more about the Tragic Hero

12th graders:

Arthur Miller wrote an article both refuting and updating Aristotle's idea of a tragic hero. He called it "Tragedy and the Common Man."

Read the article. In your sourcebook summarize it and compare and contrast Miller's definition of the tragic hero with Aristotle's definition. This sourcebook entry is due Dec 1, and should be at least 1 page long.
