This divided conscience continues to the end of the play, where there is a sense of relief when the soldiers arrive at his gate.

Othello is about as near as Shakespeare gets to classical tragedy. The Tragic Flaw. A. C.

Macbeth, hands down, should be number one as it is the best of Shakespeare's works (at least in my opinion).

Twelfth Night, in full Twelfth Night; or, What You Will, comedy in five acts by William Shakespeare, written about –02 and printed in the First Folio of from a transcript of an authorial draft or possibly a playbook. One of Shakespeare’s finest comedies, Twelfth Night precedes the great tragedies and problem plays in order of composition.

Shakespeare's Tragedies. Shakespeare's tragedies often hinge on a fatally flawed character or system, that is, a flaw ultimately results in death or destruction. Scholars divide the plays into periods. A first-period tragedy (from ) is Titus Andronicus.

He was the first son and the first surviving child in the family; two earlier children, Joan and Margaret, had died early. At the feast that night, Banquo’s ghost visits Macbeth. When he sees the ghost, Macbeth raves fearfully, startling his guests, who include most of the great Scottish nobility.
