Blog assignment: make a historical line

In lieu of commonplacing this week:

Write a blog entry with short notations (a few words) about four works we have read in relation to a single specific theme, device, problem, or pattern. Note the dates of the works as well. Then write at least two sentences about the literary-historical trajectory you see: continuity? sudden change? gradual evolution? opposing tendencies?

Due Sunday, December 1, at 5 p.m.
