    I have homework to study Aristotle and his principles to Greek tragedy. So far I have found six and I was told there were seven, also I have to elaborate on them and their definitions, then link it to Macbeth. I have found : hamartia, nemesis, catharsis, hubris, peripetia and Anagnorisis. Please can you help me to find the last one as I have spent a number of hours trying to find the last one finding the other six was hard enough but this one seems almost impossible! Please any help is muchly appreciated!

    i do believe it's "atis" what you mean. you forgotten one in the beggining. atis is the blinding of the mind one person is possessed by before committing amartia (sin); then hybris follows, which is the offence and then nemesis or tisis. btw, Aristoteles defined the characteristics of the tragedy; like melos, and opsis and stuff like that. if u have any questions about the meanings of the words u found out i can answer them all. (been studying ancient greek for over 6 years)
