Paper #2 Assignment
For this paper assignment, I will give you a specific set of questions. However, should you have a different subject or a different focus that you wish to write about than what is offered here, be sure to ask and I will probably okay your subject. These questions should be used as STARTING POINTS in writing your paper.
You do NOT have to answer one of these questions. As indicated in the first paragraph above, if you have a different subject or focus that deals with these readings, feel free to write that paper instead. These questions are only to be considered possible STARTING POINTS, to get you thinking the right way. REMEMBER THAT IN THIS CLASS, THERE IS NO ONE RIGHT ANSWER.
Don't spend much time summarizing or re-telling the stories. Remind us of the important plot points or pieces of dialogue, but assume that your readers have just recently read the stories and the philosophers.
This is an essay and should be written as such. Introduction, conclusion and body paragraphs are expected. I expect to read details and examples from the authors to back up your claims.
This should be a multi-page essay.
You do not have to worry about citing your sources at this time. You also are NOT expected to do any additional research, whether on the Internet or at the Library. I am interested in YOUR interpretation, not other authors' interpretations.
