Unlike in previous years, this semester's extra credit opportunities will not be classroom based. Instead, the opportunities will be independent assignments that will hopefully augment classroom based instruction.
Fall Semester English: Read Lady Macbeth by Susan Fraser King. Construct a literary analysis paper focusing on the divergent characterization of King's Lady Macbeth. (Use the precepts of characterization from the bildungsroman fiction unit.) The paper must explore reasons why Shakespeare would have purposefully misappropriated information to craft such a character, plausible nature of King's protagonist and her representation of Macbeth. This paper will most likely be near 8 pages.
