Compose a three- to five-page essay on the following topic:

Decide for yourself what tragedy is, and then examine Oedipus the King and Death of a Salesman as tragedies. How are they different from or similar to one another? Realizing that 2400 years separate these plays, what do these differences/ similarities mean?

create a clear and limiting title (a title page will not be necessary);

  • double-space your essay;
  • use standard margins;
  • number your pages;
  • set off and indent ten spaces, and double space quoted material over three lines;
  • proofread your essay carefully.
