Objective: Choose a writing prompt from the list below and draft, write, edit and submit an analytical literary essay. The essay is meant to assess to what extent you can identify a symbol, motif, or theme in Oedipus Rex; understand how it works; take it apart, and provide textual support. You are analyzing, NOT summarizing.
Requirements:
3-4 pages typed; MLA; size 12 Times New Roman font; double-spacing; 1- inch margins
a clear thesis and arguments
a formal writing style evidence to support each argument with page numbers
relevant analysis
prompt I chose:
It is apparent that Oedipus is a complex character with many flaws that lead to his downfall. In a well-written essay argue whether it was pride, anger, or persistence to uncover the truth which lead to his downfall.
structure:
introduction: a strong thesis statement
Body paragraph1: argument 1
Body paragraph 2: argument 2
Body paragraph 3: counterargument+ refutation (argument 3)
conclusion
Note: at least 5 sentences each paragraph and for the prompt, I think pride is what led to Odipuses downfall.
