Mercy of all mercies, comedy of all comedies, that tragedy which turned into a laugh when the hero arose from behind the props on the stage, to reveal to all of us watching that He is not in fact powerless to resolve the crises, that He is not finally tragic at all, but truly a hero without flaw, the Hero. Where belief in a happy ending was a ridiculous notion only an act earlier in the play, it seems now obvious the victory won, the relief of the comedy having been played out before our eyes by a clever Protagonist.
