13Sep 2021 by

The maximum word count is 1000 words

The exercise can go over this maximum word count by 10% without penalty
Any submission longer than 1100 words will be penalized 5%
You are not expected to use secondary sources in writing your commentaries


Each exercise will present you with four passages/images to choose from
You must choose two of the four

Each commentary is separate; you do not need to find a way to link them

For each passage/image provide an analysis of the following aspects:


Who wrote the passage/created the object?
How does this affect the way we read the passage/view the object?


When was this passage written/object created?

If it is a passage, what time period is the text set in?

How does this affect the way we read the passage/view the object?


How does this relate to the work as a whole?
If it is an object, how does it relate to its setting?

e. if the picture is of the Parthenon, how does it relate to the city of Athens?


This is the most crucial aspect of your commentary
How does the passage/object relate to the wider themes of Classical Mythology we have discussed?
Why should we care about this passage/object?


Avoid just summarizing what is in the passage
Stay on topic and avoid digression

If what you are saying does not relate directly back to the passage/object you are analyzing, you should not be writing it

Problematize the passage/object

Author bias

If a story is being translated by a foreigner/non-believer how does this affect our understanding?

Source bias

How does an author create their version of a myth? What sources might they be using?
