Honors 11: Camus’ The Myth of Sisyphus

20091216

After taking our open note, partner Myth of Sisyphus quiz, we talked for the rest of the hour about Camus’ concept of absurdity and his use of Sisyphus as an example of an ‘absurd hero’. I then introduced Simone de Beauvoir to you. You will be reading this excerpt from her book, The Second Sex. We will discuss tomorrow. You are answering either 3 of the 5 questions on the last page (use embedded evidence), or you can choose to complete a general 200-250 claim-driven response (use embedded evidence). Upload by 7:40 a.m. tomorrow morning to turnitin.com.
