Our tragedy short stories deal with a set of circumstances which conspire to cause the main protagonist to experience extreme sorrow, loss and despair. Traditional tragedies deal with characters of noble standing who are brought to ruin by a fatal or tragic flaw in their character, distinct ill fortune or even moral weakness. Modern tragedies can contain these same touchstones but normally deal with the trials and misfortunes of ordinary people. By nature, short stories in the tragedy genre contain unhappy endings, but this is often tempered by some form of catharsis.
