If Shakespeare wrote a play in which you were the main character, what would your tragic flaw be?
Othello's downfall was jealousy. Macbeth was too ambitious. If I were the Bard's subject, I would follow in the steps of Macbeth as ambition has often foiled many of my plans. What is your "tragic flaw"?
I like to participating for the drama. Othello, macbath....any. so I will choose the role of Destrimona.
Too many soliloquys. That, or indigestion caused by a Republican Congress.
On a good day I'm Mercutio, on a bad day Caliban.But most of the time:Hamlet - going crazy with family problems out of my control! lol
There are so many from which to choose! I think the word (flaw) that most succinctly describe the gestalt of my "flawed-ness" would be indecision.
Ah! A character meets his or her downfall as the result of indecision. What a truly enticing plot to contemplate.
Yep - life is binary. As molecules, predators, continents and solar systems, you're moving (acting, thus de facto deciding) or you are not - as in YOU are NOT.
I would say my tragic flaw is lack of drive. I am an intelligent woman but I have never had the drive or motivation to use it.
Perhaps like King Lear I am too trusting of others who are close friends or family . This flaw would cause me to follow someone with devious intentions, who would probably use me in some way (exploit my artistic and communicative talents) before discarding me, or double crossing me. I would end up wiser but also quite dead!!!
