Monday (10-6-08)

Today we…

  • Read an abbreviated version of Aristotle’s Poetics. (You can download a copy of the Poetics as a doc or pdf file.)
  • For each paragraph, we wrote a one sentence annotation that connected the main idea of the paragraph to the story of Oedipus Rex.

Homework: Due Tuesday 10-7-08

  • Write 5 sentences of ANALYSIS (not plot summary) that answers the following question: According to Aristotle’s Poetics (not your own personal opinion), what was the main reason Sophocles wrote Oedipus Rex?
