This midterm essay exam can focus on EITHER of the two topics listed below. Each one requires discussion/analysis of 3 of the primary texts read in Weeks 1-3*.
Be sure to include in-text citations for short quotes AND/OR paraphrases in your essay. If you
want to include a lengthy passage, I suggest paraphrasing its overall meaning/connection to your chosen theme and only quoting key wording/sentences directly.
*- Texts to choose among: Confucius, Analects; Hesiod, “Prometheus”/ “Pandora”; Plato, The Apology; Gilgamesh.
Armstrong, “What Is A Myth?”- OPTIONAL- this essay may be used in your introduction or conclusion IF it helps you frame or conclude your argument/thesis for the essay.
2. Common theme across 3 texts/cultures- You can use dichotomies like courage/heroism or any other ‘teaching’ that is prominent in the 3 texts you choose. Be sure that your discussion of each culture includes particular characteristics of their ‘world view’—especially how members of a society should behave and interact.
