answers should be 1 to 1½ pages in length, no title page, double-spaced, Times New Roman, font, size 12, and written in a formal tone (3rd person POV only). Be sure to use literary terminology (theme, epic conventions, etc.) and quotations from the texts. Include a Works Cited list after your answers (MLA format).
1) The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. What is its theme? Be very specific. Defend your answer with examples from the text.
2) Gothic literature is full of sharp contrasts: dark and light, good and evil, love and hatred, etc. Are Victor Frankenstein and his monster another example of sharp contrast or are they two of a kind? Defend your answer with examples from the text.
Example of a Poor Answer (starts vague, grammar and spelling errors, use of 1st person POV, no quotations from the literary work) :
Kings should be good people. They are suppose to be heros, and that means they have to go on a journey according to Joeseph Campbell. In the epic of Gilgamesh, there is a hero who goes on a journey. His name is the same as the story. He is not a good king until after he goes on his trip. He makes a friend and fights monsters so he can be a better person. I think he is a good king when he gets done.
The first thing he does is nothing because it’s the Status Quo step. After that he gets the call when the gods send another man to fight him. Enkidu becomes Gilgamesh friend…..
Example of a Good Answer (directly and concisely answers the question asked, uses quotations from the text, well edited for mechanics):
In The Epic of Gilgamesh, the king of Uruk, Gilgamesh, completes the Hero’s Journey. Significant steps in the journey include the Call to Adventure, Assistance, the Crisis and New Life. Through the journey, Gilgamesh is transformed from a selfish “child” into a good king.
The Call to Adventure is seen when Gilgamesh speaks to Enkindu and says, “There dwells in the forest the fierce monster Humbaba, / You and I shall kill him…” (Puchner, Gilgamesh 2. 134-35). There is no refusal of the call as happens in many journeys, but there is Assistance for Gilgamesh from both Enkidu and Ninsun. When Ninsun speaks to Enkidu in the sublime temple,she tells him, “I herewith take Enkindu, as my adopted son…” (Puchner, Gilgamesh 3.94. Ninsun helps Gilgamesh and Enkindu along their journey because she has now become the mother of them both. The Departure occurs when Gilgamesh and Enkindu “stood at the edge of the forest…” before they left the world they knew behind and entered an unknown land of dangers (Puchner, Gilgamesh 5.1)…
