Metamorphoses and Rousseau's Confessions

This paper will be 8-10 pp. and will have a research component. You will need to consider two works (one from the Ancient or Medieval World and one from the Modern) and examine the ways in which you think they share a particular theme, paying close attention to differences in the way they treat this common thread and constructing an argument about why these differences are important to our understanding of the texts you chose. You will need to use at least 4 outside sources. These can be literary criticism of the works in question, general literary criticism, or works from some other discipline that are relevant to your argument
