Overview of Project
Development of Project

The scenario for this project is that you are writing a proposal to a publisher for a book on literature that is targeting adult readers. As part of your proposal, you are including a sample chapter. This chapter will teach, demonstrate, and explain the difference between tragedy and comedy in drama.

In the chapter, you will include commentary on Antigone and The Importance of Being Earnest and how each work is an illustration of tragedy or comedy, respectively. Include in your chapter a discussion of each play's theme and how that theme relates to one of the following: the human condition (how the works depict something "human" and place a value on it, such as showing "love"), ethics (how the theme demonstrates ethical behavior and interaction between characters), or diversity and culture (actions that present characters in situations of diversity and/or cultural awareness and interactions). 

The chapter will include a close reading of each work and an explanation of how that work embodies the theme you have chosen.  Be sure to make connections between the works (for example, comparison and/or contrast) to show how one work’s approach to a theme or concept differs from another’s.

The chapter should be presented in a well-designed, clear format. At least two graphics should be included. 

In general, you should begin your chapter with an overview and then include definitions of tragedy, comedy, and any other relevant terms. Then, include your analysis of each play.

You should give the chapter an appropriate title.

This paper should be 8-10 pages (2,000-2,500 words) and follow MLA Format, including 1 inch margins, Times New Roman font, and double spaced. Images also need to be documented.
