Directions:· Take-Home Exams are open note and open book – it is expected that you will use both to create your responses.· Each question will be answered within a certain word limit that will be specified for each question. Some questions will have more than one option that you can choose to answer. In these situations, you do not have to answer every question option but you must answer every component of a question. (Some questions will have multiple parts that will need to be addressed in your response)· Make sure that you clearly identify which option you are answering for each question (if applicable).· The entirety of the volume of work that is produced should be within 1100-1800 words.· Format the exam as you would a paper (1” margins, Times New Roman size 12 font, Double Spaced without extra space between paragraphs).· Use textual references to support your claims. You do not need to use direct quotes but all quoted material needs to be cited.· Use parenthetical citations when necessary – you just need to include the name of the text(s) and relevant line/page/Act, Scene, and line numbers. For example (The Ramayana 676) and (Medea, lns. 44-52), and (Cupid’s Revenge I.v.122-131) are fine.· You will only need to include a Works Cited page for material that does not come directly from you or the primary texts that you are working with.· You do not need to conduct any new research, but you are free to do so if you so choose.· Email me if you have any questions or concerns.· BE ADVISED that your Exams will be checked for plagiarism.TEXTSEpic of GilgameshRamanayaLysistrataMedeaCupid RevengeTake Home Exam QuestionsQuestion 1 (You WILL answer this question)In the space of approximately 250-400 words in total, explore how a given theme, literary device, cultural practice, or social norm is treated, or used, differently in one epic text and one dramatic text that we have covered.
