Final Essay

The Final Essay is a 4-5 pages, double-spaced expansion of one of your close readings or discussion board posts. Instructions for the Final Essay can be found on the Weeks 8 and 9 Assignments list (under the “Weeks 8 and 9” Module) and in the Close Reading Assignment, in the “Course Materials” Module.

Please follow MLA document conventions. You need not use any outside sources beyond the primary text. However, if you do, you will need to include a Works Cited page for ALL the sources you quote or cite. Remember: if you use a text for words or ideas, you must credit that source, and if you have a source listed in a Works Cited list, you must have an indication (by reference or citation or both) in your essay of exactly how the source was used.

So here’s what I actually recommend: read Sparknotes, available online, for Hamlet (here: http://www.sparknotes.com/shakespeare/hamlet/ (Links to an external site.)
), WHILE AT THE SAME TIME REVIEWING, in our book, the text of the play itself, especially the introductory material, and reading most – if not all – of the important passages cited in the Sparknotes for each set of scenes (in other words, spot reading).

Finally, if at all possible, watch a film version of Hamlet, which you can find on Amazon Prime to rent, if it’s not available at a nearby library. I recommend the Mel Gibson version as a very basic, fun, slightly truncated, and easy-to-follow interpretation of the play. In other words, the very best way to read a Shakespeare play is to see a performance – after some preparation.

Hamlet WILL be included on the Final Exam. You should be able to easily answer the questions and identifications for Hamlet on the final exam by following the method outlined above. I would be very happy, given the very short duration of this term, if you did the prep work outlined above for Hamlet and then – even after the term had ended – made a point of watching a good film version (or better, seeing a performance!) of this very important (arguably the most important) Shakespeare play.

The rise of Rome in Virgil’s Narrative The Aeneid

The Aeneid is my favorite text because is a classical narrative telling the story about the foundation of Rome from the ashes of Troy. The whole piece is named after a Trojan hero Aeneas who was a son of a Trojan aristocrat. War survivors are led by Aeneas through the Mediterranean to reach the place they would live for their future which is Rome. The fall of Troy is at the beginning of the narrative. The survivors who are warriors of the war sail on the Trojan fleet but have to endure the storms of the Mediterranean Sea. The storm is sent by the queen of gods, Juno who is not on good terms with the Trojans. Juno seeks to revenge for the injustices done on her by the leader of the Trojans, Aeneas. It is made clear that Aeneas descendants will destroy Carthage, which is Dido’s favorite city. The Trojans are almost losing it when the sea god Neptune rescues them and guided the Trojan fleet to the shore.

I like how Aeneas describes the story about the fall of Troy and the manipulations bringing a giant horse left by the Greeks into their city which had Greek soldiers in it who sneaked out in the night letting Greek soldiers in. After the destruction of Troy, the Trojan survivors have been sailing since then. Aeneas describes how hard they fought to save the city but it was not possible. Aeneas was able to get his father and son safe out of Troy but his wife disappeared. The ghost of his wife told him to find a new queen in Italy. All the survivors then flee to the neighboring Thrace and attempt to settle there. The Trojan survivors are challenged by things like Plagues and queen of the sea before reaching their land of destiny which was Rome. The Queen of Carthage, causes tragedy in several scenes a good example being the romance and sexual liaison with the Trojan leader. This happens after Dido gets impressed by Aeneas and his feats making her develop a feeling for him.

Juno reminds Aeneas of his fate and duty. Aeneas’s fate of leaving makes Dido feel uncomfortable because she even foresees her death. The Trojans stop at Sicily for anniversary celebrations of the deceased father of their leader, Aeneas. On their sail, they have to fight unfavorable winds. The Trojan ship is set on fire something that shakes their leader until the father’s spirit comes and tells him to sail to Italy to meet him in the underworld.

On arrival in Italy, the leader receives prophesies about where the doors to the underworld were. Aeneas is guided on how to get to the underworld. The Trojans meet many spirits before reaching the area they could settle. Juno is always fighting Aeneas who gathers enemies to attack the Trojans. The climax of the narrative is when Turnus the prince Pallas ignites rage over Aeneas. All efforts to attack the Trojans again are not successful because they are assisted by gods.

In this piece, I focused more on the plot of the narrative. This shows what happens in the Aeneid. We are introduced, shown the rising action, its climax, falling action, and then resolution.
