Prepare: In order to complete this discussion, you will need to   read Sharon E. Cooper’s Mistaken Identity: A Ten Minute Play from   Chapter 14 of Journey into Literature.

 

Description: Reflect Icon

Reflect: In the “Tragedy” discussion this week, you explored the   function of conflict in a tragedy and how the conflict is enhanced by certain   literary elements and techniques. In this discussion activity, you will focus   on comedy. Reflect on Mistaken Identity: A Ten Minute Play. This is a   modern comedy that centers on the quest for love and understanding. Consider   whether the function of the conflict in this play and the way the literary   elements and techniques enhance the conflict is different from what we   studied in Macbeth.
