Trying to study for my classics midterm. Anybody have some old essays I could read? We were given 4 possible essay topics and tomorrow we'll be given 2 of them. Bleh.|
Greek Lyric Poetry
Sophocles, Oedipus the King
Herodutus -- History
Thucydides -- History
2 of these 4 will be on the midterm.
1. What role does the pursuit of honor and or reputation play in any two works we have read this quarter?
2. How does the relationship between gods and humans differ in the three tragedies read?
3. What is the role of violence in at least three of the works we have read this quarter?
4. Is the character of Socrates treated differently in "The Clouds" than in "Symposium"?
