Your paper should be formatting according to MLA style and standards. Use the MLA template provided for you in the Start Here module.
You MUST cite your sources properly whenever citing an outside source. Include quotation marks around your cited phrases, in-text (parenthetical reference) and a works cited list at the end of your essay. Failure to do so will result in F on this assignment.
Responses should fully address the essay prompt. Draw specific conclusions and support your conclusions with examples. Avoid broad generalizations and do not use fillers such as in my opinion, I believe, I think, etc. in your essay.
Summarize the main points of the discussion between Antigone and Creon in Scene II. Be sure to present the argument according to each’s perspective. In other words, how does Creon justify his actions? How does Antigone justify her actions?
Choose one side – either Creon’s or Antigone’s – and defend their position. Why do you feel he/she is right and just? Be sure to consider their actions within the context of ancient Greece, which as you know, valued patriarchy, democracy, humanism, stoicism and idealism.
