All Reading Response must begin with a quotation
The quotation must be located underneath the original title. Throughout RR3, writers will explain their connection to the quotation without explicitly referring to it (avoid language such as “This quote is about”). Note: do not write a summary of the reading. Responding is finding your own interpretation/analysis of what you have read; therefore, it takes critical thinking.
Choose one or more of the Prompts below:
- Who do you believe is the tragic hero in both Oedipus and Medea?
- What do you believe is the tragic hero’s harmatia?
- Do these plays offer the audience a catharsis?
- How do these plays evoke tragic pity and fear?
The requirements for Reading Response 3: Medea & Oedipus are:
