 In order to avoid repeating yourself, try focusing on some different texts than those you selected in the

previous question, although, of course, you may mention the same work more than once:

In The Republic, Plato writes, "we mean to employ for our souls' health the rougher and severer poet or story-teller, who will imitate the style of the virtuous only." What does he mean by this? How have authors/artists/filmmakers/etc. responded to this idea? Do the figures you choose to discuss agree with Plato, disagree, or a little of both? Your answer should refer to specific passages in the texts you choose to discuss.
