Dropbox Icon Complete the following assignment and submit your work to the dropbox.

Write a literary essay using the cause and effect pattern.

As has been evident throughout this unit, there is a relationship between dramatic works and their target audience. The social, cultural, and economic values and perspectives of the audience do also influence the themes and interpretations of a text, however.

Select one speech from Act IV and write a cause and effect essay for how it targets its audience. You may choose a target audience of any context or production of the play – the original Elizabethan, or a later dramatic version. If you choose a later dramatic version (Branagh’s version, Gibson’s version, or Olivier’s version) you must deal with all the interpretive evidence of the version you choose. You have to be true to the evidence. Please provide a link to the reading or clip you are using for your teacher, or provide correct bibliographical information to the particular film version you are choosing. However, one should not have to see your version to judge or understand your essay. You, however, should have seen and studied it to write your essay.

Include an Annotated Bibliography in MLA format.
