An intepretation of Marie de France’s lai Bisclavret

Topics for Theme 2

Write at least at least four pages on ONE of the following topics.  Before beginning to write this essay, review the grading standards for themes posted on the course WebCT site, keeping in mind the main points:  you should write an introduction that establishes your topic and states your thesis, that you should develop the thesis in an organized manner, and that you should support your points through interpretations of specific details in the text.  Move quickly from general statements to these interpretations so that your paper constructs an argument about how the text is to be read.  It is also important that you edit your paper carefully as well, finding errors in word choice, grammar, and mechanics.In general, editing and writing style will count for half of the grade of the paper.
Let's make that grade!
