According to critic Northrop Frye, “Tragic heroes are so much the highest points in their human landscape that they seem the inevitable conductors of the power about them, great trees more likely to be struck by lightning than a clump of grass. Conductors may of course be instruments as well as victims of the divine lightning.” Select a novel or play (Fences, Death of a Salesman, or Oedipus Rex) in which a tragic figure functions as an instrument of the suffering of others.
