It is due IN CLASS FOR THE PEER-REVIEW SESSION on Wednesday, February 19th. 4) To write the essay I would like you to address the following points: • Give a BRIEF overview of the two epics, the cultures that created them, and their date • Give an account of the grief process the two heroes, Gilgamesh and Achilles go through, especially linking them to Kübler-Ross’s theories on grief and its phases. • How are the two epics similar? How do they differ? • How can we interpret the reactions of the two heroes? Which social class do they represent and which social class is associated with the creation of the two epics? What ideology do they represent? 5) Try to avoid the use of first person singular. Write it as though you are writing an article for a good newspaper or magazine, where you have been asked to present the topic to educated people who don’t know much about antiquity. For this reason, male sure you read and re-read your text. Think of it as an essay that was written by someone else and is addressed to you as a reader. Do you understand what it says? Would you have questions? Is the author successful in conveying what he/she wants to say?
