Homework Help: English

Posted by NEED A TOPIC on Sunday, January 17, 2010 at 7:22pm.

Choose one significant, current issue, and specifically connect that issue to Oedipus the King.

You will need to consider the following:
1)Take the political structure that we observe in Oedipus The King. Discuss how the socio-political heirarchy observed in Oedipus is reflected to our own.

2)How is the relationship between powerful/rich and the less powerful/working class/poor that we see in the play illuminated in your chosen issue?

3)Conclude with some discussion about these connections might matter to modern citizens, particularly in a democracy.

All I need help with is finding a topic/ issue that strongly connects with this assignment
please and thank you :)
