Oedipus the King Quote?

18 Jan 2017 21:24 | Author: ивер блять | Category: Resume design engineer mechanical

The play opens in front of Oedipus palace at Thebes. A plague besets the city, and Oedipus enters to find a priest and crowd of children praying to the gods to free them from the curse. A blight, the priest tells Oedipus, has destroyed their crops and livestock - and even rendered their women sterile, unable to have children. The priest implores Oedipus to save the city: “Raise up our city, save it and raise it up” (51). Oedipus tells the collected crowd that even though he knows they are sick, none is as sick and devastated as he: thus clearly identifying himself with Thebes.

Oedipus tells the priest that he has sent Creon to the temple of Apollo to glean from the gods how the city might be saved. Creon then arrives and announces the command from the Oracle: “Drive out a pollution…. Grown ingrained within the land” (98-9) - namely the murderer of Laius.

    For the Greeks, the word tragedy was used much as we use the word play - but it does not carry the same implications of our modern word tragedy.

    In Athens, the performance of tragedies took place as part of festivals - the most famous being the City Dionysia, a festival which worshipped the god Dionysos. Dionysos is the god of wine, of revelry, of theatre, of frenzy and of ambiguity - a reading of Euripides Bacchae goes much of the way to explain some of the logic behind his association with the Greek theatre.

    You could wallpaper every home on Earth with the amount of scholarly papers written on Oedipus. Sure, that''s a bit of an exaggeration. You could probably only wallpaper every home in a midsized American city.

    So what are all these papers about? Well, there is a whole lot of disagreement about one central aspect of Oedipus'' character. Scholars have been getting riled up and metaphorically punching each other (scholar fight! woo-hoo!) for centuries over one essential question: what is Oedipus'' hamartia (often called a tragic flaw)?

    The story is set in very distant future, in a time when mankind is just recovering from decades of war fought between Earth and a terraformed Moon. (more…)

    A lone girl, wearing a tattered school uniform, lives on a dry river bed. She can’t go to school, has no house, not even a tent just a helpless, lonely girl. (more…)

    I hope you look back at this. Since your topic is the "I Have a Dream" speech, read the speech a couple of times. Look at the way he speaks, his diction. What is the main point in his speech? Look at the couple of times he said "I HAVE a dream." "Have" is present tense. Why would it be in the present tense? He also repeats it over and over again. Why do you think that is? **Hint: there might be a sense of urgency in his speech, meaning he maybe wanted reform NOW. You can say something about that. I could easily write a thesis statement for you, but I feel it s wrong as a writing tutor. I hope I helped you think of one on your own.

    "The Other Boleyn Girl" is a superb example of the fictionalization of history to create a film. Unfortunately, so much important material has been omitted or changed that the process did not lead to a very good film. (At this point discuss the historical problems, which have a lot to do with squeezing up the sequence of events, the fictional premarital rape of Anne by the king, the omission of the religious controversy, etc.) If you wish further discussion, please feel free to email me.
