Boby, I answered this question below. That song was originally sung by Harry Bellefonte. It could be in a folk music section or in a children's music section... look in your book to see.

I would imagine that would be "folk" music. Harry Bellafonte sang it.

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...

Literature- Antigone dialogue
We are now truly separated forever and ever... No!! ( Leave out the "now" in this sentence) Now without my brother, Haemon ( Do you mean "not" here instead of "now") This sounds very good! I would definitely give you an A so far.

Literature-Antigone re: Bob pursely
As BobPursley said, in another version she got married. I think it would have been neat if she had killed Creon and taken over the throne. However that would not have appealed to the Greek sense of tragedy.
