Tragedy

Shakespeare’s Macbeth is often considered one of literature’s greatest tragedies, not only because of Macbeth’s tragic fall from grace, but because of how the play relates to human nature and the conflicts inherent in human nature. In your initial post, please do the following:

  • State a conflict that you see present in Macbeth (please refer to the list of conflicts).
  • Respond to one of the following and provide specific textual examples:
    • Describe a key conflict in the play and how it corresponds to a character’s development.
    • Describe two key literary techniques and elements of drama that aid in developing the conflict.
    • Explain how the conflict identified in the play relates to human nature and the human condition.

Initial post must be 200 to 300 words in length and posted by Day 3.

Comedy

In the “Tragedy” discussion this week, you explored the function of conflict in a tragedy and how the conflict is enhanced by certain literary elements and techniques. In this discussion activity, you will focus on comedy.

Sharon E. Cooper’s Mistaken Identity: A Ten Minute Play is a modern comedy that centers on the quest for love and understanding. The function of the conflict in this play and the way the literary elements and techniques enhance the conflict is different from what we studied in Macbeth.

In your initial post

  • State a conflict that you see present in Mistaken Identity: A Ten Minute Play (please refer to the Types of Conflicts Found in Literature.)
  • Respond to one of the following, providing specific textual references to illustrate your ideas:
    • Describe a key conflict in the play and how it corresponds to a character’s development.
    • Describe two key literary techniques and elements and techniques of drama that aid in developing the conflict.
    • Explain how and why the conflict in this comedy is different from and/or similar to the conflict explored in tragedy.
