Storyboard Text

  • Hamartia
  • Clay from 13 Reasons Why is the tragic hero. Clay sits on his bed and tries not to think about the death of his friend Hannah Baker. She recently committed suicide. She left tapes for everyone she says was the "cause" of her death. If you got the tapes you were a reason and Clay unfortunately received the tapes.
  • Anagnorisis
  • As he listened to each tape he realize how valuable life is and how you can never know what a person is going through. Clay listening to these tapes caused him to change and evolve from the character he once was.
  • Peripeteia
  • Clay realizes that he is on the tapes. This means he is a reason for her suicide. He does not want to continue listening but he is dying to hear his tape so he continues. He finds out what really happened to her and thus changes him into a more daring character because he starts to confront those people for hurting her
  • Hubris
  • Catharsis
  • This is when you seen the tears. Clay finally listened to his tape. He heard what his role was in her death. He listened as she explained how it was not his fault but it was. She picture him as every male who hurt her. In the same token he was scared to love her. This scene had almost everyone in tears and you could feel the pain. This pain was so strong from the tape Clay even thought about suicide himself.
  • Tragic Hero Must Die
  • In the end Clay does not die physically. But emotionally his heart is dead. This was because he now knows what Hannah Baker was going through and what led to her death. He feels bad because he was not able to save her knowing that he saw the signs and was just scared to say something just like how he was scared to love her. He in the end sacrificed his friends and himself because he gave the tapes to her parents to where they could use them in the case they had against the school suggesting that bullying was the reason for her death. 
  • Clay was in fact in love with Hannah Baker so it was hard for him to listen to these tapes. It was even harder for him to go to school and look at the people who hurt her. He started to get angry and his arrogance became his downfall.
