How should a political society achieve justice? (Consider the debate in Samuel over kings, debate in Thucydides over Mitylene, the cloak-weaving metaphor in Lysistrata, etc.)


Assignment: Write a sustained essay that strongly argues for or against a political theory drawn from two or more of these texts: The Hebrew Bible, Aristophanes’ Lysistrata, Thucydides’ History of the Peloponnesian War, the Apology and the Crito.
The essay should be a minimum of 1250 words (appx. 5 double spaced pages) and should carefully follow the essay writing guide that is posted.
A. A good essay has both a strong argument reflecting your own views as the author (the polemical side to the essay), but also develops that argument from close analysis of the assigned readings (the literary side of the essay.)    These two dimensions will be blended seemlessly together in the best essays.
B. Read the essay writing guide. Then take the advice offered!
C. At least half of the real work of writing this paper will come before you type a single word. Decided on a specific thesis and then re-read the texts to find support for it.
