Antigone and the fall of humanity in Genesis can both be considered tragedies. Explain the hamartia, or tragic flaw/error, that triggers the catastrophe for one of the protagonists involved.

For this assignment, please focus on a single character from one of our readings so far (Genesis, The Odyssey or Antigone). Then compose a brief essay using one of the templates* below.

Templates:

1. Based on one or two key speeches made by your chosen character, analyze that person’s primary motivation. What do they really want? This will work best if you suspect the character is motivated by something more than what they reveal to others, or eveInstructor
n to themselves.

2. Focusing on a crucial choice made by your character, explain how their chosen course of action reveals and/or alters who they are going forward.

3. Antigone and the fall of humanity in Genesis can both be considered tragedies. Explain the hamartia, or tragic flaw/error, that triggers the catastrophe for one of the protagonists involved. Traditionally, a hamartia is inseparable from the tragic character’s strengths, so we can admire them somewhat even as they fall into ruin.
