[SOLVED] The History of the Peloponnesian War

[SOLVED] The History of the Peloponnesian War

How does classical literature (as we examined through excerpts from Homer’s The Iliad, Thucydides’ The History of the Peloponnesian War, and Sophocles’ Oedipus the King) establish the relationship between the plague and myth (myth understood as a way of explaining human events and collective crises through the supernatural)? How do these narratives explain the source and origin of the plague? How do they describe the social consequences of the epidemic? How does the plague impact the way people treat law, authority, religion, moral values, duties, relations with others, etc.? In discussing this question, you must also refer to Rene Girard’s critical essay, “The Plague in Literature and Myth.”
Each analytical essay should be 4 pages (or, approximately 1000 words) long (double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12 font). You are welcome to write longer if you wish.
You are required to use and refer to all the assigned material we covered under this unit. But the opening pieces by Virginia Woolf and Martin Pernick are optional.
Your answers should reflect a coherent and organized structure. You are expected to have an introductory thesis statement, developing paragraphs (including your supporting points and examples), and a conclusion paragraph.
Do not forget to give specific examples, quotes, and details from the texts. Remember also to indicate the page number(s) from which you quote in parenthesis.
Your grade for the paper will be based on the following elements (for further explanation of the grading rubric see the syllabus): clarity of argument, clarity of writing, quality of understanding, grasp of the issue, clear format: thesis statement, supporting ideas and evidence
Follow a proper style guideline (MLA, APA, or Chicago) for formatting, documentation, citation, punctuation, mechanics, and usage.
Use the bibliography that I shared with you for correct referencing of the sources.
This assignment aims to foster close reading and analytical skills. Therefore, you must not conduct any outside research for your essay.
