Here cousin;
On this side my hand, and on that side yours.
Now is this golden crown like a deep well
That owes two buckets, filling one another,
The emptier ever dancing in the air,
The other down, unseen, and full of water.
That bucket down and full of tears am I,
Drinking my griefs, whilst you mount up on high.

However, it was romantic tragedy, which Shakespeare wrote in Richard II, Macbeth, Hamlet, and King Lear, which prevailed. Romantic tragedy disregarded the unities (as in the use of subplots), mixed tragedy and comedy, and emphasized action, spectacle, and--increasingly--sensation.
Boccaccio notes that tragedy in its beginning is admirable and quiet, but in its ending or catastrophe ins foul and horrible. He tells of the allegory of poverty and fortune. Poverty and fortune fight, and poverty wins, forcing fortune to hold misfortune captive. Misfortune cannot be freed until someone comes along and frees her. Boccaccio tells the story of the great Greek general King Agamemnon who, as the greatest ruler of classical antiquity. organized the fleet that went to Troy, captured the city and freed Helen after a ten year siege. He was honored by fortune with great wealth and power, BUT then his downfall began.. A storm destroyed most of the fleet on the way home. Once there, a banquet given in his honor became the instrument of his death. His wife who had a lover and who hated her husband who had sacrificed their daughter to the gods to win the war, plotted his death. She brought him a robe to wear with no opening for the head, and while he struggled to put it on, was stabbed by the lover, Aegisthus.

"For here as in a looking glass, you shall see how the like have been punished in the heretofore, whereby admonished I trust it will be a good occasion to move you. This is the chief end which is set forth...punish sin boldly, both in yourselves and others. So shall God (whose iieutenants you are) either so maintain you, that no malice shall prevail or if it does, it shall be for your good, and to your eternal glory both here and in heaven.

While the "tragic victim" is one of the recurring character typesof tragedy (Cordelia, Ophelia, Desdemona, Andromaque, Hippolytus,and even, perhaps, Richard II and Phedre), tragic protagonists morefrequently have an active role, one which exposes not only theirerrors of judgment, their flaws, their own conscious or unwittingcontribution to the tragic situation, but which also suggests theirenormous potentialities to endure or survive or transcendsuffering, to learn what "naked wretches" feel, and to attain acomplex view of moral responsibility.
