Choose 1 of the following topics, and write a thesis-driven essay in response to that topic

1. The Tragic Hero: In Oedipus Tyrannus, should we view Oedipus as tragic only, or can we find something heroic in his actions and end? Support your argument by discussing events and lines from the play.

2. Being Human: Consider Oedipus' attempts to outrun prophecy: what does this tell us about ancient Greek views of human potential and limitations? Support your argument by discussing events and lines from the play.

3. Learning Culture from Literature: choose 1 poem by Li Bai, and analyze it. What can readers learn about Chinese culture in Li Bai's time from this poem? Support your argument by discussing only passages from the poem you chose.

4. Shared Themes: Choose one (1) poem by Li Bai, and identify in it a theme that you also can find in Oedipus Tyrannus. Compare and contrast the two works' treatment of the theme. Do they deal with that theme in a way that is more alike or different? Focus your thesis on arguing how the treatments are more similar/different, and support your argument by discussing only passages from the two works.

5. Make your own topic: create your own critical question to answer in your essay. If you choose this topic you must contact the instructor for approval by Thursday of Week 3. Essay submissions with unapproved topics will be returned.
