The novel as we know it developed before drama.The earliest "drama" was ancient Greek stage plays, no one knows exactly when they started, but by the 5th century BC, [ there were organized competitions as part of festivals for the god Dionysus.

If the protagonist tells the story himself, it is told in ____ person
Weegy: A tragic hero is a character in a work of fiction (often the protagonist) who commits an action or makes a mistake which eventually leads to his or her defeat. [ [ The idea of the tragic hero was created in ancient Greek tragedy and defined by Aristotle (and others). Usually, this includes the realization of the error (anagnorisis), which results in catharsis or epiphany. Aristotelian tragic hero Characteristics Aristotle once said that "A man doesn't become a hero until he can see the root of his own downfall." An Aristotelian tragic hero must have four characteristics: Nobility (of a noble birth) or wisdom (by virtue of birth).

The discovery or recognition that the reversal was brought about by the hero's own actions (anagnorisis).

Hero must have discovered his fate by his own actions, not by things happening to him. Hero must see and understand his doom, as well as the fact that his fate was discovered by his own actions. Hero's story should arouse fear and empathy. Hero must be physically or spiritually wounded by his experiences, often resulting in his death. Ideally, the hero should be a king or leader of men, so that his people experience his fall with him. The hero must be intelligent so he may learn from his mistakes. A tragic hero usually has the following sequence of "Great, Good, Flaw, Recognition, Downfall."
