- were going to finish watching “Rope”, but the DVD was misplaced by SOMEONE who borrowed Mr. Devin’s TV/DVD player.
- Instead, we learned the concept of hamartia by reviewing the term and considering how the characters in the film have their own hamartias. (You can download the handout as a doc or pdf file.)
Homework (due tomorrow):
- Write a paragraph that identifies your hamartia. Don’t forget that your greatest strength is often times your greatest weakness. What character trait of yours, when you have TOO MUCH of it, turns into a flaw? Describe your hamartia and provide some examples that prove it just might be your tragic flaw (i.e. Could it bring about your downfall?).
