Part I: The Only Part

Please write a 4-page paper (double-spaced and typed) about ONE of the texts we have read thus far (Gawain and the Green Knight, King Lear, The Tempest, or Paradise Lost, Books IV & IX). Write anything you want, any way you want to write it. It should actually be about the literary work, maybe also about our lives and this world we live in. It should be interesting. Don't bore me. That's the assignment.
