Short Essay: During the semester, you will be required to produce one 3-5 page essay (900-1500 words) on one or more works that we have read.

What you write should be an argument about how well the hero youave chosen meets / redefines / expands / subverts the conventions of epic heroism, NOT just a summary of what you have read. Unfinished or otherwise unacceptable assignments (due to excessive lateness or the like) will receive a zero. you have to choose one as better than the other.
