This Thanksgiving break, you will be writing an essay as a test grade for Antigone. You will choose between three critical lens quotations and prove or disprove the quotation using information from our most recently read play, Antigone.
Even when laws have been written down, they ought not always to remain unaltered.
Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC), Politics
Whoever desires to found a state and give it laws, must start with assuming that all men are bad and ever ready to display their vicious nature, whenever they may find occasion for it.
Niccolo Machiavelli (1469 - 1527), Discourse upon the First Ten Books of Livy
It often requires more courage to dare to do right than to fear to do wrong.
Abraham Lincoln (1809 - 1865)
If you choose to type the essay, please use Times New Roman 12 pt font and a 1" margin.
You may discuss the definition of the quotes and the chosen supporting details with other students. If, however, I find that you have plagiarized the paper and it matches that of another student, you both will receive zeros.
