The Arthur and Frodo journey events that alter the perspective on life
The Assignment: On their journeys, Arthur and Frodo face events that forever alter their perspectives on life and profoundly change how each one lives. What life lessons have you derived from your reading of their stories? How will these lessons change the way you live?
How to proceed:
1. Firstly, select one passage or scene from one of the epics, one that has been especially inﬂuential to you personally, and from which you have learned important life lessons. Type out the passage, placing it in quotation marks at the beginning of your analysis.
2. Secondly, after quoting the text exactly, brieﬂy paraphrase it.
Additionally, describe the episodes that prompted your strong reaction – the scene, event, character, idea — in your own words. Be clear and speciﬁc. What happens? Where does it happen? Why does it happen?
Remember, this section should be succinct and clear and not too long; in fact, you should not write more than one paragraph in this description.
3. Thirdly, state precisely what “life lesson” you learned from the scene you described. Please develop your ideas thoroughly.
Also, why does this scene/episode appeal to you? What precisely did you learn?
4.Finally, write a conclusion, describing the existential implications of the lesson you have learned. How does or will the lessons you learned from the epic apply to your life now and in the future?
