For this paper, you must use Aeschylus’s Oresteia or Aristophanes’s Lysistrata plus one other text from the course and discuss the ways these texts reinforce or challenge ancient Greek attitudes, ideologies, taboos, morals, etc.
Present a strong, relevant thesis statement. Make a clear argument that is the focus of the entire essay. And make sure that it relates to the topic above.
Use direct quotes and specific examples to support your thesis and properly cite the quotes (e.g. book number and line number, act number and line number, etc.).
Use at least two different ancient sources and properly cite the sources.
Do NOT not use outside sources. Focus on the primary sources we’ve read in the class.
Make sure that your paper is in final draft form (e.g. appropriate level of formality, correct spelling, clean grammar, proper formatting, etc.).
3-4 pages, double-spaced (no extra spaces between paragraphs)
