I LOVE all of these couples, but my favorite tragic couple from literature...there is no picture to show you, but it's Emil and Marie from Willa Cather's O'Pioneers. If you haven't read O' Pioneers do yourself a favor and read it. Emil and Marie will break your heart--they're amazing!
Honorable mention, Seth and Georgina from Richelle Mead's Succubus Blues.
