Essay Question with FCAs:

Part V. Written Response. (30 points possible)

Shakespeare titled his play The Tragedy of Julius Caesar. However, is Caesar really the play’s tragic hero? A tragic hero is defined by Aristotle as “a literary character who makes a judgment error, due to a flawed personality trait, and suffers a great downfall ( usually death).”  Write a well-organized essay in which you present evidence for either Caesar, Brutus, or Cassius being the play’s tragic hero. 


FCAs:
