Grading short essays over Antigone. (This assignment turned out GREAT, btw; couldn’t be happier!)

This example wasn’t a particularly well-done essay, but I thought he hit the nail on the head for at least four sentences:

On page 222, lines 1045-1046 of Antigone, the Messenger is speaking to Creon: “Great calamity can come to a man through man’s perversity.” This means disasters can come to a man that is too stubborn. […] It is still relevant today; stubbornness can be a man’s downfall. For example, if a man today is addicted to something and he is too stubborn to quit, he will lose everything, his family, friends, everything.

You got that right, kid.
