You may make appropriate brief references to other tragedies, but I want you to focus on Shakespeare’s last play as an ending. Of course you may reference any secondary material that I have provided, particularly Revelat
- You will be graded by the same criteria that I outlined in Papers 1 and 2
- Please do not do research and go to sources outside of the class.

- Your ability to focus on both Lear and The Tempest together in each paragraph.
- Your ability to talk about Shakespeare’s tragic vision and his comic vision, based on your analysis of The Tempest.

- Pay particular attention to the final chapter in Revelations, which is called The New Jerusalem.
