Epic in Gilgamesh, The Odyssey, and Beowulf
I need a five page essay in which you examine Oedipus at Colonus in terms of the criteria set forth by Aristotle in his Poetics defining a tragedy. Your theses must examine whether this play, according to Aristotles definition, is a failed or successful tragedy.
Use examples from the text and be careful to select materials from the play that best present Aristotles definition.
Pleale send me a message in about 4-5 days with the part of the essay, so I would know you are working on it.
Thank you !!!
epic in Gilgamesh, The Odyssey, and Beowulf
Write a four page essay in which you define the epic in all on the ways from literary narrative to nationalistic mouthpiece. Clarify and demonstrate your themetic points by selecting passages and structural narrative similarities from such well known epics as Gilgamesh, The Odyssey, and Beowulf. Remember that all epics have epic heroes performing heroic deeds in a remarkable narrative structure that moves the reader though nationalistic events( ethos is perhap
s more accurate here) and native settings that are often spectacular in their panoramic and patriotic rendering.
