The paper must contain: direct quotes from our gilgamesh text quoted/paraphrased vocabulary and content from the m1.1 and/or m1.2 course lectures

Pick one moment from Gilgamesh and write up a 4-5 page analysis proving how this moment is demonstrative of the traits of epic literature. This moment can be as short as a single stanza or as long as 2 pages; either way, it should be a strong example of the elements found in epic poetry. Additionally, the paper needs to identify how/where this chosen moment falls into Campbell’s “Hero’s Journey” (see Resources Hero’s Journey & the Monomyth video for more info), or, how this chosen moment defies Campbell’s template.
The paper must contain:
direct quotes from our Gilgamesh text
quoted/paraphrased vocabulary and content from the M1.1 and/or M1.2 course lectures
quoted/paraphrased vocabulary and content from Hero’s Journey & the Monomyth video.
The goal of this paper is to demonstrate your understanding of epic and its central components as a literary genre.

Avoid covering casting too wide of a net, avoid long chronology papers, and avoid papers that summarize texts w/o analysis. Remember, that though this is a 4-page minimum, getting to 4 pages doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve thoroughly formed and supported your argument.
Statements should be supported with details from the texts.
All papers must be in MLA format. Papers will be submitted to Canvas.
All quoted and paraphrased materials must be properly cited according to MLA guidelines.
Required length: 4 full pages of text + Works Cited Page. Anything short of 4 pages will receive an automatic deduction in the Style category of the rubric (see grading rubric).
These papers will be graded according to their thoughtfulness, persuasiveness, precision, textual support, clarity, attention to assignment requirements and the HSSC Writing Rubric.
