NOTE: It is never, NEVER a good idea to read a summary instead of the actual text. While a summary may be able to highlight various points of the text, it can NEVER replace the experience of reading and making meaning of your interaction with a high-level text.




  1. You will be creating a dialectical journal on your reading (specifics and due dates to follow)




  1. Finally, research and locate brief but reputable information on:

    1. The author of the play

    2. The time period of the play

    3. The type of play (tragedy or comedy)

    4. Any modern versions of the play



Reading and all of the above is due on Friday, 9/25/15
