This Resource would be useful for GCSE Students to understand the character of Eddie Carbone, a tragic hero in the modern context. It aims to lead the students to display critical thinking and sharpen their analytical skills as they relate to the changing concept of the tragic hero, who, though not a man of exalted stature as in the classical tragedies, is worthy of pity and fear.
