About the plays Hamlet and Oedipus The King

You must write 1 essay about a page 2-3 pages in length . You must write your answer in the space provided for the essay question OR you can upload your essay as an attachment. What I am looking for in your essay answers is a 5 paragraph essay format. I want you to support your statements with specific examples from the play. I want to know your opinion about the plays you are writing about, so think critically. I copied a paper outline that you SHOULD use as a model when writing the essay. This outline breaks down what a 5 paragraph essay looks like. Italicize the title of the play when writing about it, so Oedipus The King and Hamlet.

Essay Question: Greek tragic heroes suffer from the flaw of hubris (or arrogance) before the gods and fate. Compare and contrast how Oedipus and Hamlet fit this model of a tragic hero. Support your thesis with at least three examples of why or why not. 2-3 pages.

** Hint: Definition of arrogant: having or revealing an exaggerated sense of one’s own importance. (ex. Conceited, egotistical, superior or full of oneself)

***Please answer the question that is being asked above and don’t just give me a summary of the plot. Don’t come up with your own definition of a tragic hero, use mine above. Use the Paper Outline below to help with your structure. You have this week to complete this assignment. Again…..look at the Paper Outline below for writing your paper. Have a strong thesis statement, which is the point you want to make about your topic. For example making your statement about whether or not Oedipus and Hamlet do or do not fit this model of a tragic hero in regards to their arrogance or hubris. (You can also say that one of these characters does and one does not or both don’t, but you have to justify why)
