From Formalism to Inquiry: A Model of Argument in "Antigone."
Kastely, James L.
College English, v62 n2 p222-41 Nov 1999
Presents a definition for a formalist approach to teaching argument and discusses limitations and serious problems with this approach. Discusses "Antigone" as a representative text for teaching argument because it challenges the very possibility of argument. Proposes that literary texts such as "Antigone" be taught as theoretical works in argument. (SC)
