2. Refer to Book IX of Gilgamesh(pages 159-64) to provide an overview of salient aspects of the cosmology that is part of the narrative. Note that youll need to be selective in choosing what aspects of this cosmology youll choose to present as Im looking for how well you characterize the key points of this cosmology. 3. In Book VI of Gilgamesh youll find that he goes on a tirade against Ishtar. Youll notice that Mitchell is perhaps a bit Freudian in that he uses a series of yonic symbols in one of Gilgameshs speeches against Ishtar in this section of the narrative. Whats the passage? Identify an example of a yonic symbol within this passage to explain how a psychoanalytical reading of Gilgameshs disparaging comments can provide a useful resource for interpreting Gilgameshs disdainful comments. 4. The myth of Hippomenes and Atalanta (Hendricks 4 -4) was part of Ovids writing. Use the myths ending to explain what we mean by metamorphosis and why it is significant within this narrative especially in relation to Ovids overall interest in metamorphoses. 5. Theres a short incident that involves the myths associated with Oedipus in your anthology (Hendricks 4 107-8). Explain how the Greek idea of moira is useful for understanding how they thought of personal identity as youmakea reference to this myth. 6. The story of Ixion (Hendricks 4 180) includes some commentary on warnings against hubris. Why were the Ancient Greeks concerned with the effects of hubris? Use the myth to developyour answer. The next 2 questions are longer responses. You can answer them in two or three paragraphs. (The first is worth 4 point and the second is worth 5 points.) 7. David Leeming provides a good discussion of studying myth in relation to worldview in the introductory chapter ofhis book. Refer to the myth of Jason and Media (Hendricks 4 191-9) to identify an important aspect of the worldview of the teller of this Greek myth. Be sure that you not only show why this theme is part of the worldview but that your answer also reveals a good understanding of what we mean by worldview. 8. Tok Thompson and Gregory Schrempp incorporate the idea of truth into their title of their book TheTruth of Myth. In the introduction and the first chapter they explore different ideas about how we might think of the nature of truth. What is an especially significant point that they make about an inherent contrast between myth and truth? How is that idea of truth a potentially misleading way tostudy myths? You may wish to refer to a specific myth that we have read to illustrate your point.

2) We value the freedom of doctors and medical staff to speak with whoever they want (such as drug representatives) with some specific restrictions detailed in Sauls article. Is there something unique about the medical industry that justifies increased regulation and disclosure? You might argue why the system is fair and effective in its current state (perhaps even that all regulations should be removed). Perhaps such external regulation could have unintended consequences or be a waste of resources or simply infringe on doctors freedom? What ethical principle justifies your position? Feel free to bring in outside examples or analogies to support your claim.

ENG242_190 Short Story Interpretation Discussion Boards 6

2 discussion boards (250 words each discussion) Introduction In but a few short pages Kate Chopin gives us the story of an abandoned woman taken in by an older couple raised as their own married to a man of great wealth bearing a child and once again being tossed aside “ this time with a child. The twice-abandoned Desiree finds solace in Madame Valmonde both times. Madame Valmonde shows Desiree uncompromised love both as a child and as an adult with her own child. It is Armand who is cold and callous casting Desiree out because their child shows signs of being multi-racial. A few questions arise about the way in which Kate Chopin is using race as a symbol in Desirees Baby. Initial Post Instructions How does the reaction to race symbolize Chopins assessment of the fragility of love and understanding between men and women? (Consider both Armand and Madame Valmondes reactions.) Is Chopin using the childs multi-racial features to reveal a secret Armand is desperate to keep or do we automatically assume Desiree is multi-racial simply because she was abandoned as a child? Introduction In Greek tragedies there was always a chorus who served as the population of a given city a group of soldiers a collection of servants “ a mass of people who had a relevant relationship to the story at hand. This collection of characters was usually of a like mindset or bandied questions among themselves. The chorus often spoke to the audience directly warning of what was to come and assessing the injustice taking place around them. Initial Post Instructions Analyze the extent to which Zora Neale Hurston is using ˜the men from town as a Greek chorus in Sweat. Are they accomplishing the various goals laid out above or are they serving another purpose as well? The story contains an interesting collection of violence. To what extent do you hold Delia responsible for Sykes death? Do you consider her a murderer?

ENG242_190 Short Story Interpretation Discussion Boards7

2 Discussion Boards (250 words each) Introduction With A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings  we see an angel who has arrived to collect our main characters son. This is his mission. This is his quest. However due to his crash-landing and imprisonment the angel is unable to complete his goal. Consider A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings from multiple angles. Initial Post Instructions First do Fosters requirements for a quest apply to a character whose mission is thwarted from the start? Is there any difference between the stated reason to get there and the real reason (Foster 3) when a character is so quickly imprisoned? Whether or not you believe in angles accept the conceit of their abilities for our discussion. Why is the angel unable to complete his mission? Why cant he overpower mankind? Why isnt an additional angel sent to bring the son to heaven? Is Marquez making a statement about humanity with this story? Introduction For our final discussion question you will write about either The Swimmer or The Man Who Was Almost a Man. Here we have two characters on very different quests: for Cheever a middle aged man journeying back home through the swimming pools of his wealthy neighbors; for Wright a young man on a quest to get an object he believes will make him manlier. Though both are on journeys one characters is coming to an end while the other is just beginning. Initial Post Instructions Respond to one of the following: For The Swimmer consider Neddys journey and setting. How does Cheever use the element of setting to grant the reader access to Neddys mind? As he makes his way through his journey is there a point at which it becomes clear that Neddys task is perilous and that everything may not be what it seems? Identify that point (or those points) in the story and discuss the extent to which setting is representative of Neddys psyche. For The Man Who Was Almost a Man consider Daves mother and Daves ultimate journey. How do you judge Daves mother as a character? Given Daves youth and the racial elements of this story is his mother being a good mother by forcing her son to be honest or do the circumstances of Wrights story suggest that she should have lied? When it comes to Daves journey where is he going and how will his fate play out? Is this a youthful mistake he will soon realize and end up returning home or has Dave truly left his family behind?
