Can there be more than one protagonist?
There can be as many protagonists as antagonists and there are indeed many of those!
It can only be one protagonist. It derives from greek words protos and agonistis. Protos means first (like prototype). The second is deuteragonist and the third tritagonist.
in 'Romeo and Juliet', who is the protagonist and who is the deuteragonist?
