ESSAY QUESTION: Your essay should include an introduction and conclusion. Use specific examples to support your main arguments. As with the first book quiz, there will be a single essay question and to motivate you to write the best essay possible I am giving the question in advance with the expectation that your essay will demonstrate more than just a passing awareness of the main themes and allow you to select specific examples in advance.
