Write a 5-7 page paper on one of the following topics: As usual, remember to organize your paper very clearly making one analytical point in each paragraph that is clearly stated as a topic sentence at the beginning of the paragraph. This point should then be proven using quotations or paraphrasing as evidence. If you are comparing and./or contrasting an aspect of two texts, remember to go back and forth between each work noting that same aspect in one text and then in the next paragraph in the other text. Use MLA format.
