RARA-AVIS: Stephen Hunter: tragedy and melodrama

From: Michael Robison ( miker_zspider@yahoo.com)

There was a comment by an old lady in one of Hunter's novels, POINT OF IMPACT I think, where she says that something that happened was tragedy, not melodrama. She differentiates between the two by saying that the protagonist's downfall in a tragedy is caused by his virtues. Is that right? I've never heard it put that way before.
