Assignment Redux:

Research may be centered on a topic connected with sexuality, anatomy, virginity, art of love, chivalry, castle architecture, dress, or tournaments, among many other possibilities. Or your research may be on criticism of a particular literary text.

    · In this short essay, you should make use of at least three useful resources, at least two of which must be library-type resources (i.e. a scholarly printed book or journal article or article in a book or a scholarly article that happens to be made available on the Web by such a vehicle as Project Muse, J-STOR, etc.). To find three useful resources, you will, of course, need to consult many more. At least two of your sources should have been produced since 1985.
