A Greek Tragedy

The other day a friend of mine asked if I understood the definition of a Greek tragedy.

Not as much as I understand the definition of a romantic comedy.

Or a parody.

Or even a good suspense.

After that I’m pretty much lost.

He said, “the definition of a Greek tragedy is when the protagonist is given the opportunity to avoid a fatal outcome but doesn’t take it.”

That’s not tragic.

That’s apropos.
