The mid-term exam will consist of a short essay (5-7 paragraphs) answering one of the two questions.You may use the textbook and discussion boards (a good rule of thumb is at least one quote from the textbook per paragraph) as support for the more specific thesis statements that will be given in the exam.Two general topics (again, choose to write on one):1. Images of gods: how do the ancients’ stories explain their world(s) through their fear and loyalty to their god(s)?2. Images of Women: what do we see in the ancients’ societies through the depiction of women and femininity?
The text book is Compact Anthology of World Literature. So far we have learnt Gilgamesh, The Iliad, The art of war, Metamorphoses.
