Select a work from our textbook, either of the two first volumes. You should select a work we have not already and are not going to cover together, but you may choose a different work by an author that we will cover (other than Shakespeare or Chaucer). With consultation, I would allow you to select an author and work from our time period, but not in our book. For your chosen work, you should research the following:
4. The biography of the author (especially focusing on any relevance to the selected work);
5. Your analysis of what you found and how it’s important to our current understanding of the
work; this part should be at least 2-3 pages.
