Alyssa's 9th Journal Entry
I think that Nora is a tragic hero because in a way she is tragic because she doesn't realize how much her husband tries to control her and by trying to help him she hurts him. I think she is a tragic hero like Oedipus because when she did something bad all she was doing was trying to help her husband and in the end that is what frees her from him. Which is a good thing but when this play was written everyone went nuts that Nora didn't come back or something bad happened to her because no one believed that a women would do that and have no misfortune. I know that Oedipus was the one that stabbed his own eyes and asked for him to get exiled so it’s also hard to compare them because it seems that Nora in a way had a good ending because she was free. But the story seems to end with her coming back which could be very devastating. But I do think that Nora is a tragic hero because she led herself to her end by trying to do something nice but it ends up her husband getting super mad and kicking her out.
