Eddie tragic hero essay

  1. 1. A View from the Bridge by Arthur MillerThat’s tragic, Eddie It has been argued that ‘the tragic mode is archaic, fit only for the very highly placed, the kings or the kingly’. Discuss the extent to which you feel Eddie is a suitable tragic hero.The following questions are designed to help you prepare your essay. You canchange the order and must add points of your own to answer the essay question. What is a tragic hero? What is traditionally expected of such a character? What does Arthur Miller have to say about the tragic hero in today’s society? In which ways is Eddie a tragic hero? Are his actions heroic? Does he match the traditional view of a hero? Does he satisfy Miller’s definition of a modern tragic hero? How might the stage appear to an audience at the start of the play? Is this a scene set up for tragedy? What might they expect from the set? How does it establish place and time? Alfieri apparently takes a similar role to that of the chorus in a Greek tragedy. What would a chorus traditionally do? How does Alfieri embody this role? Look at the opening of the play. What is the effect of his introduction? The hero has a tragic flaw. What is Eddie’s? Look at the parts where Eddie comes home to Catherine and where Beatrice is talking to Catherine about her behaviour. Honour is an important theme in Greek tragedy. Find two sections which you think show the importance of honour to Eddie. How does the audience feel? Do they sympathise with Eddie? How does Eddie change between the two scenes? Is the outcome of the play inevitable? In Greek tragedy fate plays a part in the hero’s destiny. For example, Oedipus was destined to kill his father. What elements lead to Eddie’s downfall? Is Eddie suitable as a tragic hero?
