Please answer one of the following questions in an essay of five pages. You should utilize course readings and lectures to your advantage in answering the question but focus your paper on the book. Be sure that you answer each segment of the prompt. The essay should be constructed using formal essay guidelines (12 pt Times New Roman font or standard equivalent and one inch margins) and part of your grade will depend on grammar, spelling, and mechanics. Please consult the General Essay Guidelines or email me with any questions about format or content. Please use Chicago Manual of Style footnotes for all citations. Be sure to use citations whenever you include information that is neither common knowledge nor your own and be aware that improper citations will be penalized. You do not need a Works Cited page unless you use outside sources (websites, other articles or books, textbooks that we have not used in class).
