Overlapping Contexts: The Short Essays 2: As You Like It and Twelfth Night
Following the completion of discussion of every second play, you will write a short essay that compares and contrasts overlapping themes, characters, situations, etc. as they occur in the two specific texts. For this assignment the focus will be on similarities and differences in As You Like It and Twelfth Night.
Relying on your journals, lecture, discussion, and the specifically cited texts, write a brief, concise reflection on the interplay of important ideas, situations, characters, or themes. Specifically reference relevant aspects of text-to-text overlaps (i.e. where can you see the specific occurrences of a theme in both As You Like It and Twelfth Night? How do these occurrences compare? How are they similar and how different?).
While the overlapping context papers are meant to be relatively short, it is necessary that they be specific and concise. Don’t try to cover everything. Chose one or two elements and be thorough within that context.
Rather than using extensive quotation, simple refer to the act, scene, and line(s) of your citation (i.e. Twelfth Night, I, 1.1-35 would bring me to Twelfth Night Act 1, scene 1, lines 1 thru 35).
Length: It is anticipated that your papers will range from a minimum of five to seven paragraphs, typed, double spaced, Times New Roman 12p. The seven paragraph paper is the most logical, given an intro, conclusion, and five paragraphs, one each focusing on each of the five acts.
