Instructions
This essay should be a 600-900 word essay focusing on the assigned readings from the course. It is due by 11:55 pm ET on Sunday of Week 6.

· This should be a close reading essay, and should use as evidence primarily passages from the work or works that you discuss. You may not use ANY outside sources without the instructor’s approval.

· The essay should be in MLA essay format (see the attached sample essay below), and use MLA citations. A works cited entry and in-text citations for each text discussed are required.

· It should have a self-assessment (which should answer these questions) as the first page.

· Analytical essays should be focused on making a debatable claim about the work in question; creative submissions should be focused on presenting a work or kind of work from a different angle. Informational essays or essays consisting of summary are not appropriate for either type of essay. Both types of essay should be supported with discussion of specific passages from the text(s) on which the essay is focused. The grading rubrics for both analytical and creative choices are attached.

be sure to write a thesis-driven essay in response to the topic.

Analytical Choice

1. Tragedy Across the Mediterranean: Consider “The Tale of Sohrab” from the Shahnameh in comparison to Oedipus Tyrannus from the Week 2 readings. Make an argument about whether the two works are more alike or different and why. Focus your thesis on one particular aspect of the two works such as protagonists, themes, central conflicts, or other another element that you see as important.</pclass=”msonormal”>
