Instructions:Select the correct answer. The prologue is an element of Greek tragedies that sets the play in motion. How does the opening scene in Antigone between Antigone and Ismene spark the play's action?

B.by highlighting the closeness of Antigone and Ismene's relationship
C.by focusing on the mood of the Theban citizens just after they have won a war
D.by contrasting the plights of Oedipus's unfortunate sons, Eteocles and Polyneices


Answer 1

The correct answer is A. The opening scene reveals Antigone's plan of burying her brother against the king's orders. This marks two of the themes of the play: civil disobedience, as we would call it nowadays, or resistance against unjust authority, and the opposition of divine and human law. Antigone means to bury his brother, in direct defiance of Creon, because his decree (human law) goes against the law of the gods.

Answer 2

D.by contrasting the plights of Oedipus's unfortunate sons, Eteocles and Polyneices

Dear Mr. Miles:

Last week I purchased a complete hardcover set of the Resolution series by Janet Fredericks. Unfortunately when the package arrived, it was not only smashed, but several of the books had received water damage and one was missing.

I have done business with your company for years and am extremely disappointed in the quality of this delivery. I would appreciate a shipment of a new set and instructions on how to return the damaged books, at your expense.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
