to put yourself in the position of one of the central characters from the first two plays that we have read (Antigoneor The Tempest) and to determine what values they hold and how they understand their responsibilities based on their values. So, for example, you might examine the character of Creon in Oedipus Rexand ask yourself how does Creon define his dutyto Thebes? Or, you might ask yourself how does Prospero understand fatherhood? Your assignment is to trace and examine a particular characters values as they are presented in the dialogue and action of one of the first two plays.
