We will take the Unit 1 Exam on Fiction on Monday, March 14, and I

play, Oedipus the King (Oedipus
Rex), opens. Be prepared to discuss the Prolog
Episode of the play by Thursday morning's class. Read also the
assigned chapter on Introduction to Drama.
Print the questions for
Oedipus the King
for next week. It is NOT critical that you have these
answered during the first week we are discussing the play, but
you should have written answers by Week 8.
Please also print the Notes on the History of Greek Drama.
These will be useful for understanding the context of Oedipus
