The Assignment

"Your goal will be to produce an essay that explores and discusses your personal relationship with this hero narrative, analyzes the hero and how he or she is portrayed in the fictional text, and draws in relevant information and analysis from additional sources of research: it will be a combination of personal/reflective memoir, literary analysis, and research-based information, and the challenge will be to integrate these aspects into a single coherent piece of work."
