Discuss characteristics of literature
Choose a work from the Middle Ages or the early Renaissance that is not on our reading list (you may select works from the text or outside the text, but if you find a work outside the text, please include a Works Cited page). Discuss characteristics of literature from the period you are discussing and locate examples of these characteristics in the work you’ve selected. For example, Renaissance literature deals with characters on a more human scale than works from earlier periods; also, there are elements of science and discovery beginning to replace some religious elements in the writing (and other arts).
Use different sources but mostly focus on one written work from The Middle Ages/ Renaissance period, which ever one you choose.
Be sure to include concrete, specific examples in the essay and cite them in the essay itself and in the work cited.
