Question description

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.

Rough Draft is due to the Week 8 Forum by Wednesday. The final presentation needs to be submitted by Sunday, 11:55 PM EST.

grand daughter of king Minos.His birth was
tied in the line Tantalus and a member of the
cursed house.

 Menelaus

had a brother, who was very
famous known as King Agamemnon .The
curse in their Tantalus line of heritage had

siblings.During the youth Agamemnon and

precincts of the court of King Polyphodes and

their stay at Calydon, Menelaus and

Mycanae.They made their way to Sparta to
enlist the help of the famous and strongest
king of their time King Tyndareus.

on how to go about it. The oath of Tyndereus
was formulated and each of suitors was to swear
