This assignment asks you to form a focused thesis of your choice and carefully support it with a logical argument and evidence from the texts you are analyzing. You will write a 1000-1200 word analysis, supported by relevant quotes from the readings, that advances a thesis argument on the topic of your choice. The thesis should be built on close readings from and should incorporate readings from at least 2 days in class selected from Oct 5 or later (the Lucretius reading or Later in the semester)
Make sure to craft a thesis that you can support using the texts. For example, the thesis could be about rhetorical style and writing (for example, exploring how writing style might impact how society is portrayed. For this type of essay, you could choose two similar styles to make a singular argument about a particular writing style and its effect or two distinct styles to compare).
The topic will be as described above. how purgatory is motivated by fear, and the fear drives people closer to heaven and closer to god. the fear doesn’t only motivate them but it teaches them right from wrong and gives them a fundamental understanding of good and bad. please use quotes and evidence from the text (this essay is all about the text and proving your points through the text).
