Literature Antigone Part 2 Dialogue
Theresa, regarding a grade... because of the grammar errors, I would not give this over a B minus. But, before I gave you a grade on this part I would ask that you do some proofing and change that Creon speech. Make it consistent with his character.

Literature Antigone Part 2 Dialogue
Proof read this for grammar and spelling errors. I didn't care for this speech. It doesn't fit Creon's character and it makes Haemon's act not logical. Creon: Your right, Haemon! I've been acting like a demon A self-centered cruel demon I'm sorry Haemon...
