Compare the treatment of the natural world in the poetry of Li Bo with the odes and satires of Horace (Vol. A) 2. Compare the function of women as a societal danger in either Othello or The Medea with either Lysistrata or Agamemnon (Vol. A) 3. Compare the negation of the body in the poetry of Sor Juana Inez De La Cruz with the poetry of John Donne (Vol. C) 4. Compare the consequences of tradition in the works of Ban Zhao and Confucius’ Analects (Vol. A) For three points of extra credit on your final grade, you may write about a second option from the list.
