A Visual Crash Course in Shakespeare’s Tragedies

There’s a saying that you can tell whether you’re watching a Shakespearean comedy or tragedy with this easy litmus test: if everyone gets married, you’re watching a comedy, and if everyone dies, you’re watching a tragedy. (What about those pesky “history” plays? That’s another can of worms altogether!)
