I am not sure what definition of Shakespearean Tragedy you are using (what does your teacher say?), but here is what you need to look at. 1 - Does the play have five acts? All Shakespearean plays do, but this is part of the definition. 2 - Do all the main characters die at the end? In Shakespeare sometimes the only difference between the tragedy and the comedy is the death of people at the end. 3 - Does the climax happen in the third act? The best definition of climax is that point in the play at which the end becomes the end. This means that something happens which gives the characters no other choice but that which will happen at the end.
