Essay 1 READ ALL OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS. Do NOT submit a Word doc/pdf. Use the Canvas submission box. Prompt Inspired by William Blake's illuminations, this assignment asks you to "illuminate" ONE assigned poem by a late Romantic/early Victorian: Keats, Shelley, Byron, Tennyson, Barrett Browning, or Browning. Illuminate the poem 1) by providing a photograph, illustration, or other visual media that you create AND 2) by writing about your visual in relation to the poem. In short, your "essay" involves creating a visual AND written text. Read on for specific requirements. The Visual Upload a visual that YOU have created. You can take a picture on your phone, draw/paint/sketch a picture and take a picture of it, or create or design some digital art, such as a meme or gif. Short videos welcome, too-- as long as they can be uploaded to Canvas. UPDATE: YOU MUST CLICK THE BOX AGREEING TO THE "END-USER LISCENCE AGREEMENT. Failure to do so will result in Canvas hiding your visual and an incomplete submission. For a short one-minute video that walks you through the process of uploading your image from start to finish, click here (Links to an external site.). DO NOT CUT AND PASTE RANDOM IMAGES FROM THE WEB. THIS IS PLAGIARISM. You must significantly transform an image if you use an existing one from the web (as with a meme); this will make it your creation. Your visual can be specific (like an actual picture of a bird) or it can be abstract (like a picture of a color you want to focus on). Your visual can also evoke a theme; perhaps you take a picture of a bird because the bird's flight evokes the theme of freedom in the poem. Give yourself something meaningful to say. If you take a picture of a bird, you must have more to say than "I have a picture of a bird, and there is a bird in the myth." That might be true, but you need to explain your choices. Why did you choose to take a picture of this particular bird? Why did you take picture of it flying versus feeding on the ground? This is not an art class, and you will not be judged on technical skill. You will, however, be judged on your effort, which will also come through in your written explanation. See below. Explain Your Visual Underneath the visual that you upload into the Canvas submission box, provide 1-2 paragraphs. One paragraph is minimal; two paragraphs allow for more substance. These paragraphs should do the following (in this general order): • Identify the author and poem that your visual is illuminating, as well as the basic gist of your visual (this topic sentence makes your claim) • Describe your visual, explaining how it relates to the poem. BE SPECIFIC WITH DETAILS ABOUT YOUR VISUAL AND THE POEM. See above for questions to get you started. • Analyze how your visual provides insight into the poem as the work of the author's literary movement/period. You could also consider the relevance of literary movement/period's ideas. Stronger essays will accurately incorporate direct evidence (i.e. quotes) from the poem, as well as possibly the Norton textbook intros, Module (lecture) pages, and/or the documentaries. Click here for a resource re: using quotes. (Links to an external site.) Sources Use the course texts (see above). Provide page or line numbers in parenthetical documentation; no need for a Works Cited. You are prohibited from using any other sources because they aren't necessary for this assignment, which asks you to engage with the course material in a really focused way. Do NOT cut and paste from the Module lectures into your submission without properly attributing and/or quoting; this is plagiarism. Essay 2 READ ALL OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

Rambles in Germany and Italy is a travel narrative by Mary Shelley. It was the last of
Shelley's published works and was issued in 1844. The text describes the trip that Mary took with
her son and several other university students. The trip is associated with joy, they enjoyed
sceneries. The journey served as a pilgrimage to cure her depression. She had lost her husband and
two of her children. Shelley believed that traveling to Italy and revisiting the scenes of her youth
may bring back the good old memories; Rome delights her eyes and imaginations. Traveling to
watch beautiful scenarios is therapeutic; it relieves travelers of their burdens and brightens their
