I don't have any specific suggestions except to talk to your teacher about how he or she might suggest shaping your thesis. I wrote a tragedy paper in high school that was different from the one the students wrote at the Irving School. I think there are many ways you could approach it. I wish you great luck. I'm so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the book. Thank you!(less)

Dear Sam,

Thanks so much for your question. It is really hard to sum up The Tragedy Paper with just one question since so many are raised in the book. Most of those questions are the same ones someone might ask about literary tragedy in general. Focusing on Tim I will try to sum up some of those questions - what is his tragic flaw? Does he bring about his own downfall and, if so, how? And then some more basic questions might come up stepping away from the idea of tragedy and literary tragedy - what is it like to be a teenager? How does that experience vary depending on how you perceive yourself and how others perceive you? I hope this helps! Thanks again for reaching out to me.

Sincerely,
Elizabeth(less)

“I had the distinct feeling that the universe was out of whack and normal rules didn't apply. I sort of liked it.”
Elizabeth LaBan, The Tragedy Paper

“He didn't believe in himself. I have to say - with all this tragedy vocabulary going around - that I can see it so clearly now. His tragic flaw was that he didn't believe in himself.”
