#2

 

Instructions:  This assignment contains two essay (five paragraphs at minimum) discussion questions.  For each question, you should write a good basic literary argument with a clear thesis and reasons why, which will be explained in the body paragraphs.  Each body paragraph should argue each individual point logically with at least one direct quote from the primary text (the literary work) per paragraph.  The direct quotes should be cited and incorporated into your argument.  Work cited page is not necessary if you are using the textbook for the class for page/line numbers.  I will check for grammar and correct handling of quotes according to MLA.  Each question is worth 50pts each for 100pts total.

 

1. Argue the similarities and differences between Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and “The Wife of Bath’s Tale” from the Canterbury Tales.  Use direct quote examples to explain your answer.

 

2. Explain what specific elements makes “The Miller’s Prologue and Tale” so funny for audiences in the Middle Ages as well as for modern ones.  Use direct quote examples to explain your answer. (Note: Keep in mind Chaucer’s characters are in some part studies into people in certain jobs from the Middle Ages.  What is he saying about people in these jobs?)

1. Using the poems from Spencer, Marlowe, Sir Ralegh, Sir Sidney, and Shakespeare, argue what makes the love poetry from this period speak to modern audiences just as well now as it did then.  In other words, what makes them so popular or universal? Use specific direct quotes from the play to help prove your points.

 

2.  Argue what makes Twelfth Night comedic in Shakespeare’s time and now.  Make sure to include the definition of comedy for the period, but do not ignore other features of the play that make it comedic.  Use specific direct quotes from the play to help prove your points.
