long annalitcal essay
Long Analytical Essay. This essay must be a minimum of 1500 words (approximately five typed pages). Essays shorter than the required word length will be penalized (longer essays are fine).
The essay will be on:
Aristotle detailed four characteristics necessary to the ideal character in a tragic: goodness, propriety, true to life, and consistency. Explain how the character of Hamlet, Blanche, or Stanley fits—or perhaps does not entirely fit—Aristotle’s definition of character. Describe how Hamlet fits the roles.
Start the essay with this:
Introduction paragraph: Goodness, propriety, true to life, and consistency. When bakers bake, they tend to use the finest combination of ingredients. When farmers farm, they use the best seeds. When firefighters fight fires, they use the best hoses. When professors teach, they use the best textbooks. So goes the tragic hero. Centuries ago Aristotle created a recipe that is still used today. Much like most recipes its often tweeked, salted to taste, but remains true to its principles. No less is the composition of the tragic hero.
