 Paper #3:  The Aeneid and The Bacchae

Due December 12, 23:59

Choose a topic and compose a paper of at least six pages that asserts a thesis or solution to a problem that is found in both works.

Your paper should balance the discussion between the two works. 

Here are some possible areas of issues found in both texts. You may choose one of these or come up with your own.

Whatever topic you choose - be sure to state the problem that arises with that topic and how the two works solve the problem.

Masculine vs. Feminine

Know Thyself

Our Duty to the Gods

Reason vs. Passion

I will review one draft - due electronically by 23:59 December 10.
