Journey Paper

Due: September 12th


The journey is a reoccurring theme in this year’s literature.  Sometimes the journey is figurative, as in the growth of a character.  In other literature, the journey is literal, as in that of Odysseus in The Odyssey.   


You are to examine yourself and your life and discuss in a short paper a journey you have embarked on.  This paper is not to be a summary of a road trip you took over the summer, but an examination of your life and an event in that has left you changed.  Be sure to explain: the situation, the change, be it bad or good, and any lasting effects.


Please refer to the essay guidelines for proper format.
