Mythology first paper | Ancient history homework help


Choose two major myths or episodes in Greek mythology (i.e. a major Homeric hymn or set of hymns, a substantial account or summary such as Hesiod or Apollodorus, or major episodes in one of the Homeric epics). Do not choose myths that you discussed in your previous paper. Compare and contrast the figures and events described in the two myths or episodes, and demonstrate how they contain important wisdom or lessons for an ancient and/or modern audience.

Be sure to construct a thesis statement that you will be able to prove through thoughtful scrutiny of the myths, supported by evidence from the text.

You may use any translation/text of the myths, but be sure to cite them properly, as you should cite everything.

You may use additional sources but they MUST be cited properly. If I cannot check your sources, you will lose points.

This paper should be approximately 4-5 pages in length (around 900-1000 words).

Remember to check your word count. Papers with fewer than 900 words will lose points as a result. Don’t forget to include a Works Cited page and use MLA style and formatting.

There is a rubric for this paper. It is different from the rubric used for the first paper. Please check your paper against the rubric to be sure you have done everything correctly in order to receive the best grade. 

Helpful hints:

This paper can use any two myths that can be compared and contrasted, so long as you discuss the wisdom or lesson for an ancient or modern audience. You can use any myth in Greek mythology, even ones we haven’t covered yet.

An example of a thesis statement for this paper is: In the myths of Niobe and Arachne, hubris (excessive pride) is severely punished by the gods, when Niobe’s children are killed and Arachne is turned into a spider, demonstrating to an ancient audience the need to know one’s place.
