One difference between tragedy and comedy is that tragedy
A. uses supernatuarl elements
B. usually features an extraodinary hero.
C.makes us laugh at ourselves,not others.
D. uses metaphors and analogy to make its point
Try some of the following links for information:
Tragedy- the fall of a tragic hero
Comedy- funny based on words
Comedy in the traditional sense (ancient Greece and Rome; Shakespeare) is not "funny" in our modern-day understanding.
Notice that in Shakespeare's tragedies, just about everyone dies by the end of each play. In his comedies, however, that doesn't happen.
Read that first paragraph VERY CAREFULLY.
