Your essay response must effectively synthesize and analyze the two texts in relation to each other. This means you might discuss their similarities in relation to the topic of the question, or their differences, or both.

Select ONE literary theory and explain how TWO works we have studied can be “read” through this lens. How do these texts demonstrate specific elements of this literary theory?
Option 2: Consider the portrayal of gender in two works in this course. How are male and female characters portrayed? How does the work portray their roles in society?

Option 3: Identify a specific theme that was developed in two works we have studied in this course. What was this theme, how as it developed? Was it linked to any motifs? How did this development differ in the two texts?
