Honors English II
Tonight continue reading Kafka's "The Metamorphosis". As you read, continue to take notes related to your essential questions and continue to note the motifs as they appear in your reading. You should make it to the end of chapter two tonight.
Once you've finished the reading, respond to the following question using your knowledge of the text and your own personal opinion:
Both Oedipus and Gregor can be viewed as tragic characters because they are the victims of forces beyond their control; which of the two characters would you consider to be more tragic and pitiable? Oedipus or Gregor? Why?
Be sure to use references to the text and clear explanation to make your argument clear. Don't forget that on Wednesday we will have time to work on the Multi-Genre Project and I will want to see what you've done on your outlines, so bring in what you need to bring in to be productive.
