One Last Thing…

It is interesting to note that a lot of our greatest tragedies come from quite moralistic times.  Shakespeare is from the Elizabethian and Jacobian eras (and his greatness wasn’t realized until many years after).  Death of A Salesman came out in the 50’s.  And the works of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripedes were built to inject the masses with a sense of morals.  Can’t have much tragedy without much morals.  If everything is permitted there’s nothing to feel bad for.  Everything is just some giant anti-climax.  And that’s just boring.

  1. The Disenfranchised Voice of He Who Once Walked Among Us says:

    I’m beginning to think two weeks wasn’t enough time, you should have taken three, but the whole (morals+(empathy/anger+pain-happiness))+(RE(relative experience) * length/impact) = tragedy equation seems to fit.

    Incidently, I feel sad when my greenhouse is inexplicably destroyed by a hurricane and had a full year’s crops ready for harvest inside. >_<. Rotten weather system.
