Aristotle defined tragedy 'an imitation of an action that is serious, complete, and of a certain magnitude'...'several kinds being found in separate parts of the play; in the form of action, not of narrative; with incidents arousing pity and fear'. He went further by outlining the 6 defining parts that every tragedy must have, these include plot, characters, diction, thought, spectacle, and melody.
We may be thin, big, small, large, fat, skinny, big boned, chubby
but still, like dust, we rise!

with our bowed head and lowered eyes?
