This Weekend's Tasks

This weekend's work starts early:
  • Read Rush Rehm: Greek Tragic Theatre
  • Read Æschylus: the Suppliants
  • Read Clifford Ashby: "Validation (and Discovery) by Experiment"
  • Read David Wiles: "The Theatre of Dionysus"
  • Read Dion Boucicault: The Octoroon
  • Finish Bernard Williams: Shame and Necessity (I'm loving this book, by the way)
  • Read Sophocles: Electra
  • Read Sophocles: Œdipus at Colonus
  • Read Sigmund Freud: "On Oedipus and Hamlet"
  • Read Joel D. Schwartz: "Human Action and Political Action in Oedipus Tyrannos"
  • Read Dorothy Willner: "The Oedipus Complex, Antigone, and Electra"

My lord there is so much to do. I am supposed to be attending a conference called Film/Lit this weekend, too. And researching a project on Women in Ancient Greece. This is getting to be ridiculous. I'd also like to catch at least one movie. Oh yeah, and I'll have a new batch of papers to grade too. Help!
