YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO DO ONE ESSAY DISCUSSING TWO WORKS STUDIED THIS YEAR – you may use THINGS FALL APART as your primary source and “EPIC OF GILGAMESH” and/or “EPIC OF SUNDIATA” as your secondary source
Here is the TOPIC QUESTION FOR YOUR FIRST “REQUIRED” ESSAY

cultures to construct literary works about heroes? When does a positive
personality of the epic tradition become a tragic flaw?
Then you will be asked to write a second essay discussing two works studied this year – you might want to start off with whichever one you did not mention in your first essay and then go back to THINKS FALL APART as your secondary source
You will be able to choose from two topics for this essay.

conflicts that cultures grappled with hundreds and even thousands of years ago
and are still relevant today?
