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
The German philosopher Hegel stated that the play Antigone represents “the tragic collision of right against right, with both sides equally justified.” Antigone is right, he argues, for “prioritizing divine law,” and Creon is right for “prioritizing human law.” Do you agree with this interpretation? Why or why not? Use quotations from the play and your own explanations to support your opinion.
· The intro paragraph should introduce the author, the play title, a lead-in for your thesis, and end with a thesis statement that answers the question.
· 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 philosophical conclusion can you draw about humanity based on your argument?
· 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.
· * Plays are cited by Scene and Line number in the parenthetical, NOT author’s last name. (Sc 1 Lns 12-15).
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.
