The Alchemist (1610)
The difference between the plot of The Alchemist and the plot of tragedy is not a difference of logical structure. It is simply a difference of attitude toward life. Tragedy treats of characters and events seriously, under the inexorable domination of the law of fate, while comedy treats of characters and events humorously, under the exorable adjustment of social conventions.
