Analyse my life, tragedy or comedy?

My hubris, the fatal flaw - love as an ideology.

Sure, it has it's moments, but that's just contrast,

The main characters die? Well, none of my friends last.

 

The main character nearly always dies?

Why does that come as no great surprise?

The death of an innocent has come and gone,

Showing that the ending has already begun.

 

My life has a few good moments, but lead to my downfall,

My hubris is always present, the start of love, for example.

It needs a contrast to highlight the bad and show it is bad,

Well, in my opinion my life is a tragedy, but maybe I'm mad?

 

Analyse this man's life from his poetry,

In your opinion, is it a tragedy or a comedy?

Hubris - the fatal flaw of a character that leads to their downfall and eventual death in Tragedy.

i love this, just as you are not ready to examine your self you left it to the audience to judge.

It's because it's a man's life, not mere fiction, that one cannot say 'this is a tragedy' nor can they say 'this is a comedy' because in reality, both are entirely correct.

Look up "Stranger than fiction" - It's life, but it's a novel.

Can a hero not be tragic and comedic? Doesn't every person have a hubris? Doesn't everyone die?

But what sets a hero apart, is that they keep moving forward in the face of pain and implemented doom. I believe you are a hero. So I know you will be strong, and you will survive. :hug:

Yeah, but the hero in a tragedy always dies an unnatural death at a relatively early age xD

xD Maybe you will break the archetypal ending hmm? : ) And life isn't just a tragedy, its everything and nothing and both and none (if that makes sense xD). You can only see one point in your life (everything up to this point). You don't have an overview of your life yet so you can't condemn yourself to "tragedy" yet.

Maybe this is just an obstacle that will lead you to something great? Who knows until it happens?

xD That seems like an awesome idea for a movie. That certainly is very interesting XD

Yup.
But he finds someone asks them "Is it a tragedy or comedy?"
And then tries to analyse it.
Everyone's life leans one way or the other, you see.
Written or lived, it's the same.
