that can do my 1000 word thesis statement thingy for me?
1000 words is easy. Do it overnight. I'll help! (which might make things worse)
i've managed to write 1000 words in 45 minutes.
you can do it in a night easy!
- a contemporary reader about the political and social context of the time?
Go to Wikipedia, speed-read about that period, draw parallels with modern society, use adverbs. Essay done.
If I can find an e-mail my English lecturer friend gave me I can send it you. It outlines how to prepare and write an essay very quickly
I'd be most grateful :)
include the fact that the punishment is made worse because oedipus' parents try to stop the prophecy from happening
the fact that it all happens as punishment for the actions of Laius; its the whole greek thing of how people are punished for the misdeeds of their parents.
i am supposed to be writing about cicero's pro caelio. for midday tomorrow. it isnt going all that well. i have a translation to do as well. :(.
that is helpful!
and good luck with your work :)
You are way too stressed out. You have to out and out fail about half your modules before they kick you off, right.
Of course, that said, if you screw up now, you're not suddenly going to mend your ways later.
GET ON WITH YOUR WORK!
I have writers block, I've been out of the learning game for a while and I seem to have completly lost all my former intelligence (my older sister used to ask me for help with her essays!)
I just can't think, and I can't form sentances and I just dont know where to start :(
But thanks anyway.
It is easy and all you need is a pass.
And this essay is already late cos I thought u had to hand it in in the lesson :(
our work ethic is precisely similar.
isnt that much. if you do a long wordy intro, put in a few long quotes from the play and a critic and you'll be there.
long quotes=the key
Are you supposed to put quotes from the play in them?
The girl I spoke to today said she didnt and no.
i dont know what one of them is. so she must be right.
My brother has an MPhil in classics and stuff, so if i know exactly what to ask i can see if he has any tips and things.
Assuming he's online at some point.
This is the question---
'In what ways does Oedipus Rex demonstrate the function of theatre in 5th Century Athens? What can the play itself tell a contemporary reader about the political and social context of the time?'
if my brother comes onlind i'll ask him
relating it to THE QUESTION tho.
and got an A. Let this be an inspiration
&now i'm thinking that maybe that was an in-joke.
i'm so tactless.
You're right. Gerry is much eaier to remember.
I'll be EXTRA EXTRA nice to you when we are married now!
(see! u have an in-joke, cept its more of an msn one, but still...)
this is just a crazy misunderstanding, that has hijacked your thread.
I always think of him as Gerald, cos I didnt know the name Gerard existed. So in my head its always Gerald.
You do your essay.
...though i should do the same.
I myself have a 1000 word essay to do...
we ALL do!
im reading stuff to try and help tho.
