Please write a strong essay and for each evidence or citation mark it in essay with the book name and page number. You are not allowed to use any sources other than the ones listed above. Your paragraph cannot be longer than a page, ideal paragraph is a little less than a page. Please choose from the three topics I have listed below and use the three sources above to answer one of the prompts below in your essay. Your essay has to be minimum of 5 pages.

Prompt 1: In Genesis and Exodus God seems displeased by human society on numerous occasions. At several points He moves to destroy those societies. In The Odyssey the titular hero encounters several societies that offer alternatives to both his home in Ithaca and the smoking ruins of Troy. For multiple reasons Odysseus finds these societies lacking in one way or another. Do God and Odysseus see similar flaws in the cities and societies they either leave or actively try to destroy? If they do how can this similarity be explained? If not is it simply the difference between a god and a man or does it reveal something rooted in the cultures that spawned both works?
<
<
Prompt 2: Compare Odysseus and Abraham as fathers, husbands, and leaders. One abandons his son for almost twenty years while the other is willing to sacrifice his son to demonstrate his devotion to God. Their positions as husbands appear equally problematic as Abraham spends a good deal of time disguisng his wife as a his sister and Odysseus takes on a series of lovers during his long absence from his wife. Despite these apparent failings both men are consider exemplarary leaders. Why? How can we reconcile their failures or at the very least issues with parenting and being good spouses with their status as cultural models? Are the types of attention and devotion appropriate on a familial level antithetical to those required of good leader?
<
<
Prompt 3: Odysseus and Jacob/Israel display strikingly similar charactertistics at key moments in their stories. Their relationships with other people tend towards deception while their connections with God/the gods is far more intimate than we are used to encountering. Do the similarities stop there or are there deeper points of comparison that can be made for thr two? Unlike their contemporaries both men appear willing to oppose rather than uphold cultural norms. If they are dissenters how can they still serve as exemplars?

The topic is what the essay needs to be about. I need a writer who has read the odyssey and can source material from it. I attached a word document and the first page gives instructions on how the paper needs to be built.

Don’t write about “music.”

Assignment: In this class, we have examined cultural artifacts from thousands of years ago that still speak to us in some way, and say something to us about the cultures that produced them.
<
<
In a brief essay (approximately 750-1000 words, at least 5 well-developed paragraphs, MLA style), choose a cultural artifact from our contemporary world that you think will last for centuries. What cultural artifact from our world do you think people will study in the distant future? Imagine someone taking a Humanities or Cultural History course in some distant future. What from our time do you think will still be worth studying then? Why did you choose this artifact, and how does it represent today’s culture? Be specific, be detailed, and write well.
<
<
By “cultural artifact” I mean any created work of art, like the things we have studied this semester, or you have studied in other humanities-related classes. This could be literature (poem, novel, any book); music (a song or a particular album, for example); visual art (paintings, drawings, sculpture, electronic visual art); a work of architecture; a film; a television series; or something else that could be described as a “cultural artifact.” By “contemporary” I mean “created within your lifetime, the recent past, no longer than 50 years ago.”
<
<
Do NOT write about smart phones, the internet, etc. For the purposes of this essay these are tools, not works of art.
<
<
Guidelines: Here are some things you may want to consider…
<
<
The subject matter. What does the work portray? What is the purpose of portraying this?
<
Describe it in terms of form. If it’s visual, talk about composition (arrangement of elements, light, color, form), and any other significant aspect of its visual appearance. If it’s music, discuss genre, instruments, etc. If it’s film, something about how the story is told, both in its narrative and visual aspects
<
What about the work makes it representative of our times? This is important. Remember, you’re using it as an example of our cultural for a hypothetical future Humanities course.
<
Why does the work appeal to you? How did you come to know it? What does it mean to you?
<
Please choose a specific work, rather than a category of cultural artifact. For example, don’t write about “books.” Write about a specific book. Don’t write about “music.” You can write about a specific piece of music.
<
<
Be original, be thorough, be specific, and most of all, think for yourself. Apply your own analytical and critical skills to the exercise. If you need to do some research, and you probably will, make sure you identify your sources and include a bibliography. To use any unidentified information is plagiarism and will be handled as such. To balance your understanding, you should consult a variety of sources: textbook, encyclopedias, books, articles, and online information. You may consult online sources but BE WARNED: you must apply your critical thinking to ensure that the source is reliable.
<
<
I do not want a cover page. Your essay should simply put your name, my name, class and section, and date in the upper left-hand corner, and then center your title. If you are unfamiliar with MLA style, the Library/Learning Commons on any FSCJ campus is an excellent resource.

Is the live theater version the better way to experience this play or is the film version better (support with at least 2 sentences)?

1. Carefully read the required pages in the textbook.—–2. In this 2 part Discussion, prepare to write a 400 word (or greater) essay addressing the prompt based on information in the textbook, directed research, and/or your own research. Plan to write 3-5 paragraphs for this post on the following topic:—–“In a world of cinematic spectacle, why might we say that live theater still matters?” This is a question that is at the end of the module’s PowerPoint on Theater. To help answer this question, compose an essay comparing a live version and a film version of the same scene from the Shakespearean play, “Much Ado About Nothing.” How do these two genres (live theatre and film) compare in regards to the links below? Which is more engaging for the audience? Which do you prefer? Is the live theater version the better way to experience this play or is the film version better (support with at least 2 sentences)? If the filmed versions of Shakespeare’s plays are mostly what audiences experience, could that be a reason why modern audiences do not always care for Shakespeare, as it is not live?—–In planning to write this response in 3-5 paragraphs, please FOCUS ON THE FILM VERSION IN ONE PARAGRAPH AND THE LIVE VERSION(S) IN ANOTHER PARAGRAPH and build your discussion into ANSWERING THE QUESTIONS ABOVE THROUGH THOSE PARAGRAPHS AND BUILDING INTO THE LAST PARAGRAPH(S) with the comparisons and final answers to the topic.

However, i urge you to care more for content and interest rather than word count.

Assignment: Watch the video clip linked at bottom of this description. This is a telling of the “Allegory of the Cave.” – link to an external site – (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegory_of_the_cave) from Plato’s Republic. It offers a story of how “enlightenment” can change someone’s outlook, and what happens when the enlightened one returns to his former condition. Read the background and explanation of the allegory as a whole in the above link to provide background for your viewing.
<
What I’d like you to write about is an example from your own life. This could be a moment (like what people sometimes call an “ah-ha moment”), a process, or even a time when you looked back and realized that you had changed, and you now see the world differently.
<
<
There are many ways you could approach this. You may choose to focus on the process itself, or how you felt afterwards. You may compare the before and after. You may wish to discuss the consequences of your change. In other words, how did it change your relationships with friends, family, coworkers, how you lived your life, how you viewed the world around you?

I expect at least five well-developed paragraphs, and word count in the 750-1000 word range. However, I urge you to care more for content and interest rather than word count.
