Dear Mythology Students,
1. We took a quiz covering the information that we discussed last week regarding the fundamentals of Greek drama. If you missed class, please be prepared to take this quiz upon your return.
2. We then read a portion of "Antigone" by Sophocles.
3. Remember that you will have a quiz covering "Antigone" on Wednesday. If you missed class, then I would read the myth in your textbook. It is located on page 273. Please be familiar with the characters of Antigone, Ismene, Polyneices, Etocles, Creon and Haimon
4. Please DON'T MISS CLASS on WEDNESDAY, as your Nature Myth is due!
