Write a 3-page multi-paragraph essay on the assignment below. For this assignment you need to include
· textual evidence
· 4 academic outside sources (no googled websites)
· proper parentheticals*
· works cited page
Write an essay that argues who is the protagonist and who is the antagonist in the play: Antigone or Creon?
· The intro paragraph should introduce the author, the play title, the idea of protagonist and antagonist, and end with a thesis statement that answers the question.
· Devote one body paragraph to whom you think is the protagonist and one body paragraph to whom you think is the antagonist.
· Include the outside academic (no web sites) sources to support your arguments, not make your arguments.
· Please use literary resources when researching literary topics. (see below)
· Make your concluding paragraph meaningful. What did you learn about protagonists and antagonists?
· Construct a formal works cited page. (See page 237 in your textbook.) You may craft it yourself, as some students prefer, or use NoodleTools, as others prefer.
· Consult various composition and documentation examples posted on e-Campus.
· If you go to the Learning Center, and I think that would be a good idea, print out a copy of this prompt to take with you.
· * Parentheticals for plays are Act, Scene, line numbers in the parenthetical, not author or page number (Sc 2 Line 3) (Ode Lines 47-53).
General Words of Advice: Never start a writing assignment with broad generalizations about life, love, the universe, or timeless things throughout history. Spelling counts, grammar counts, neatness counts, intelligence counts, grooming counts.
Research resources to avoid: Google author’s biography reviews and summaries newspaper articles Facts on File Opposing viewpoints
Try to access literary resources for a literary analysis: Literary Resource Center, Literary Reference Center, Drama Criticism, CMLC, etc. Check your syllabus for conference dates, rough draft dates, due date.
