Writing Exercise 10

Character is Destiny


Write a one-page (250-300 words) analysis of how Antigone’s character determines her fate in the play. Think about how her personality influences her actions. How does her personality lead her to a tragic ending?

Give your analysis a clear and explicit thesis and cite specific lines from the scene to support your argument.

For this, and all your essays in this class, please use strict MLA format.
