You have read and discussed The Epic of Gilgamesh, a text dating back more than 3700 years. In similar fashion, you have familiarized yourself with the story of The Odyssey.
For this first essay, I would like you to think of one theme you have found to be present in both The Epic of Gilgamesh and The Odyssey. Keeping in mind the course title, The Good Life, you may want to explore the (role of the) underworld in both epics, the wanderings of Gilgamesh and those of Odysseus, and/or the killing of Humbaba versus the blinding of the Cyclops Polyphemus.
I do not want to put a word limit on your essay, but you should write a well-structured essay. A good essay has a systematic structure and at least three body paragraphs. Ideally, at any one point in the essay your readers will know where they are, and why. This means that you are clear about what you want to write before you start, and that you organize your thoughts in a coherent manner. The link between different sections will be obvious to both you and your readers.
I will grade your essay based on whether or not
1. you produced a cohesive and coherent paper of college-level prose;
2. you incorporated quotes in your essay (if you quoted);
3. you adhered to the conventions of the English language; and
4. you related to the themes and ideas in the readings as outlined in the assignment.
