"Antigone" on the Night Shift: Classics in the Contemporary Classroom.
Devenish, Alan
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v27 n4 p407-15 May 2000
Examines community college students' choices of favorite works after a one-year composition and literature course. Finds "Antigone" was the favorite. Claims Greek classical works put students in contact with a distant culture that they find intriguing. Suggests juxtaposing a classical work with one from another time and culture to avoid assuming the classics into a rigid cultural hegemony. (NH)
