Choose any one principle of drama that was detailed in lecture of either Aristotle or Dr. Johnson, and write an essay analysing how your chosen principle applies to either Prometheus Bound or Henry V.
For example, you might choose to show how one or more of Shakespeare's characters in Henry V is, as Dr. Johnson states, not an individual but a species.
Your paper will follow proper grammer and the orthodox structural form of the academic essay.
Your essay will have three general parts.
- The first part, one quarter of the essay, approximately three hundred and seventy-five words, will name your chosen concept and demonstrate that you correctly understand it.
- The second part, one half of the essay, approximately seven hundred and fifty words, will consist of your analysis of how your concept applies to either of the two plays.
- The third part, one quarter of the essay, approximately three hundred and seventy-five words, will give your own personal evaluation of the explanatory validity or value of your chosen concept.
Note. Although the mid-term essay has three general parts, the essay is one smooth and unbroken argument: do not fracture your essay into three sections separated by a headers "1, 2, 3." English 103W is a writing-intensive course and working toward correct essay formation is an essential part of all WI course requirements.
