If you missed class on Thursday, October 8th we accomplished the following:
1. We completed our discussion of Greek drama. YOU WILL HAVE A QUIZ COVERING THIS INFORMATION ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 12th. The best way to prepare for the quiz is to familiarize yourself with the information on your handout. For your quiz you will be given 10 words associated with Greek drama. You will then need to explain Greek drama using those words in a well constructed paragraph.
2. I introduced the myth of "ANTIGONE" (pg. 273) on Thursday. "Antigone" is the companion piece to "Oedipus." It is the myth of what happens to Oedipus after he blinds himself and is banished from Thebes. Antigone is the oldest female child of Oedipus and Jocata. I gave each student a copy of the myth to read as homework. I also requested that they read the myth found within their text. YOU WILL HAVE A QUIZ OVER "ANTIGONE" ON WEDNESDAY. It was originally written as a myth, and then retold as a drama by Sophocles. We will read a section of the drama in class on Monday. It is a story about doing what is honorable and just, even when you are the only individual who has the courage to behave with such fortitude.
3. Please remember that your Nature Myth is due on Wednesday, October 14th. You must bring your rough draft to class on the due date; it should be corrected and include a signature. In addition, please remember to bring TWO COPIES of your FIRST DRAFT (the corrected rough draft) to class on WEDNESDAY.
