I will give you four passages that you can use but you can also pick your own but please show me before and make sure to have the correct citations.

Make sure you have access to the book. You will have to pick 4 passages and critique and support the passages through close reading. Focusing on Book 1 to 6 to help you understand and determine Eve’s character. Provide reasons in each case for why the passage is important and for your ranking. Make sure your order is logical as well.

The paper assignment is to pick FOUR passages and (at least 5-6 lines, and one of them should be more). Rank them in order of importance as you see it, providing your reasons in each case (i.e. through your topic sentence) for why the passage is important and for your ranking. Make sure your ranking is logical as well.

The rest of the paper is to support that assessment through close reading. I’ll be expecting extensive and connected discussion of imagery and links among word choices and also among passages.

Your argument should be like “These four passages are most important in our understanding of Eve because…..” I do not expect more of an argument than that, as long as you have clear informative topic sentences governing each passage. You should type out the passages single spaced, following indentation. italics or bold no quotes for the passages.
