Today, we begin All My Sons. Before we start reading/acting, I need a few volunteers to take part in a demonstration about the basics of Greek Tragedy. Here are the terms I will introduce to you:
- Hubris (Hue-bris)
- Hamartia (Ha-mar-tee-a)
- Opsis (Op-sis)
- Catharsis (Cath-R-sus)
I want you to keep these terms in mind as we begin reading All My Sons. Remember that Miller’s work often follows the pattern of Greek tragedy.
