Breaking Bad and MacBeth

Breaking Bad and MacBeth

I’ve been watching Breaking Bad again lately.  I couldn’t help but think of Walter White as a tragic hero in the way that the term is used in classic tragedies.  My favorite tragedy is MacBeth.  I googled the two together and found the above article, that is a pretty convincing comparison between the two and how Walter White fits the tragic hero mold.
