Question Description

Need help with my Powerpoint question - I’m studying for my class.

Basic Overview

The assignment is to create a PowerPoint presentation (or other multimedia presentation) on a legendary figure, place, item, or event from world literature (1600 CE or earlier). It should contain roughly 800-1200 words of text and some form or forms of other media (art, music, etc.). This length requirement will bend a bit depending on the project type, so contact me with any questions you have.

Note that all writing in the project should be original; the projects will be run through Turnitin upon submission, and all distinctive matching information caught by Turnitin must be formatted as a quotation. DO NOT copy-paste material without immediately marking it as a quotation and citing it. Any multimedia (art, music) inserted or linked in the presentation should also include full bibliographic information.

All projects should have:

  1. a title page
  2. MLA style citations/works cited page.
  3. The project's text should be 800-1200 words long or so.

As long as the project has all of these items, you can let your imaginations roam a bit to come up with something really creative.

Guidelines for Choosing an Topic

The chosen figure/place/event/item should be known before 1600 CE and be primarily legendary or mythological, not historical. The presentation needs to include a combination of information and analysis, so make sure to choose a figure, etc. that lends itself to analysis.


Required sources:

  • at least 5 secondary/critical sources; 2 must be peer-reviewed
  • at least 1 primary source (literary text, artwork) written/created before 1600

DO NOT rely on Wikipedia or as major resources for the project. These can be useful as effective ways to get started, but only use them as a springboard to other stronger resources. The bibliography and further reading sections of Wikipedia pages can be particularly helpful in finding additional sources.

The Twelve Labors of Hercules
Instructor’s Name

• Hercules was the son of Zeus.
• After tying the knot and being blessed with
children, Hera’s jealousy made him
temporarily insane.
• He murdered his wife and children (Kerényi
• He had to complete a set of twelve labors
as punishment.

The First Labor
• 1st Labor: Nemean Lion
• The lion’s skin was extraordinarily strong
that no spear or arrow could go through it.
• Hercules used his bare hands to strangle it.
• He skinned the lion, stretched out its skin,
and wore it as a cloak.

The Second Labor
• 2nd Labor: Lernaean Hydra
• Snake-like hydra with many heads.
• If one head got chopped off, two heads
grew back to the place of the chopped head
(Kerényi 144).
• Hercules defeated the hydra with the help
of an ally.

The Third Labor

3rd Labor: Ceryneian Hind
Hind with golden horns.
Watched and protected by Artemis.
Hercules hunted it down for one year
before he found it.
