    Well, firstly can anyone here tell we what exactly it means by the downfall of a tragic protagonist? How can a protagonist be tragic? (: And alright I will but I am still gonna do the research so I know why I picked it ^^

    the protagonist is the hero. A tragic hero is one that is being punished incorrectly.

    Yes key work ITS, i was confused because the sentences structure sounds like the protagonist him/herself was tragic.... so its not saying that? (:

    hero is a dated term; its the one you feel the most emotion towards, like the most, are moved by
