We have met various aspects of a ‘tragic world’ in different chapters. We have looked at the first and last moments of these plays; and we have explored how the tragedy is dramatised through the portrayal of the protagonist, women, society, and by means of humour. Each of our chapters so far has been based on short extracts, one from each of the tragedies; and we have built our developing analysis of the plays carefully, exploiting detailed analysis of short extracts to the full and making sparing use of references to the rest of the play in each case.
