You will choose one option from Part 2. Each question is its own essay. You should use your book for support for the essay questions. You may use the short hand in text type of MLA citations that you use for your literary analyses.
Label Part 1 for the first part, answer it; double space, label Part 2 for the second part, answer it. Submit one document.
Pay close attention to the texts you should use for each question. If the prompt asks you to use one Romantic and one Realist text, for example, and you use two Romantic texts, the highest grade you can receive is a 60 for answering a maximum of 2/3 of the prompt.
Part 1—You MUST write on this topic. (2pages for part 1)
Define the Gothic in your own words. Using that definition, chose one Romantic and one Realist text and write an essay that supports your definition. You will need to argue why the texts you chose fit into the definition of Gothic you have chosen (you may talk about an element of the Gothic, such as say, the Grotesque). You should have a thesis statement/a clearly articulated definition, and examples from two different texts that illustrate your definition and make an argument for why you believe they are Gothic texts.
Part 2—Chose one topic from below on which to write. Only choose ONE topic from the two below. (2pages for Part 2)
1. Define Romanticism in your own words. Using that definition, choose two texts from the Romanticism unit and write an essay that supports your definition.

You should have a thesis statement/a clearly articulated definition, and examples from two different texts that illustrate your definition and make an argument for why you believe they are Romantic texts. (You may NOT use any of the text that fall under the Realism unit—check your Instructions for where Realism begins.).
