The American novelist, John Irving, says said about his work The World According to Garp, that it is a life-redeeming work in which everybody dies. Comment on the extent to which the same might be said of Hamlet.
How is the book "The World According to Garp" life-redeeming?
Everyone dies at the end of Hamlet because it is a tragedy. A tragedy is a larger than life genre where the characters grapple with big ideas. I guess you could say that whenever everyone dies though it is technically tragic!
