The Iliad help me with homework: Do you think Achilles is a tragic hero

Do you think Achilles is a tragic hero? See “Tragedy: the Basics” (packet 63). Look for examples of hubris on his part (12 boys 365, 404, 441, 445; Lycaon 405-06; fighting the river; treatment of Hector 433, 468-9). Name some aspects of Achilles’ story and character that might be seen as “tragic.” If you do not think that Achilles is tragic, give reasons for your views. Are any other persons or events “tragic” in the Iliad? Vase painting: Geometric Vase showing funeral of a dead warrior (c. 750 BC, about when the Iliad was written down)
