1. Two Summaries
Read “Medon Meets a Cyclops” and “Epic Ways of Killing a Woman,” then write a summary of that article, no more than ½ page in length, which explains the article’s main claim and the arguments it uses to support that claim.
2. One poem
Write 20-40 lines of epic poetry about your life. How you make it poetry is up to you; you may want to use rhyme, meter or other formal devices. How you make it “epic” is also up to you, but you can apply some of the things you’ve learned in lecture and section to make what you write more like the Odyssey. Like Odysseus, you should not feel bound by a strict respect for the truth.
