Project #83945 - Oedipus Paper

Please answer the following topic in a short essay of 1000 words (about 4 pages double-spaced.) Make sure your essay has an introduction, conclusion, and body paragraphs with topic sentences that advance your thesis. Also make sure to have supporting quotes from the play itself, the Johnston "guest lecture" or anywhere /anyone else, but make sure you have a Works Cited page in MLA format. (This is the same citation format from English 101.)  Don't forget that the play title itself must be underlined or italicized every time you mention it.

*I cannot be responsible for essays submitted outside this Assignment window. With 40 people in the class I cannot go searching through PMs and emails trying to find your essay. Sometimes I might have time to try to find it, but ultimately, either it's here, or it's not.*

You have two weeks to complete this, but the sooner the better, so you can put Oedipus behind you and snuggle in with Fences!

TOPICS (Choose one.)

1. Why is Oedipus Rex an important play? (What values, ideas, lessons does it transmit, both in ancient times and today?)  **Sorry, you cannot answer that it is not an important play. You may feel this way, but it wouldn't give you much to write about.**

 

2. Argue that the personalities of Oedipus/Creon in the play Oedipus Rex are similar to that of _______________ (fill in). [Examples: Obama and Biden, Trotsky and Lenin, etc.]

 

3. Argue that the difference between ruling styles of Oedipus and Creon mirrors the difference in styles between U.S. presidents Bush (Jr.) and Obama.
