Essay Topic 1
What is the nature of the gods in The Epic of Gilgamesh? Are the gods good or are they evil? Do the gods establish a good toward which human beings should strive, or are they merely meddlers in the affairs of men? What does it mean for Gilgamesh to be two-thirds god and one-third man?
Is Gilgamesh a virtuous character? What is the crucial point for his transformation from a tyrant to one who seeks knowledge? Is Gilgamesh a man of action or a man of contemplation?
The Epic of Gilgamesh and The Inferno both have important female characters who are tremendously influential in the development of the plots. What role do women play within the role of these works, and in which ways is this significant? In what respect do women hold important positions? What is the manner in which they are accorded respect? Consider this topic for writing on either or both epic poems.
Does Gilgamesh change over the course of their respective epic poems? Does he meet the hero standards according to Joseph Campbell? In what important ways does Gilgamesh develop, or remain firm?
How is Virgil’s presence vital to Dante’s journey through Hell in the Inferno?
Explore Dante’s use of the numbers 3 and 1, and the combinations of those numbers. Provide examples of how these numbers function in the epic poem.
In Canto V of the Inferno, explain how punishment fits the sin. See sample essay as possible approach.
A few reminders before you write. . .
Your paper will NOT necessarily answer all the questions in the prompt. These questions are designed to get you THINKING. You must decide what to focus on and what INTERPRETIVE POINT to argue. A topic is not a thesis. A series of observations that are true but not debatable may be excellent notes for a paper, but they are not (yet) interpretive analytic writing. Until you say something debatable about the topic which can be supported by textual interpretation, your paper has no interpretive focus (there is no debatable thesis).
Be sure that your essay conforms to the standards outlined in the Basic Steps in Writing a Literature Paper and on the ESSAY EVALUATION CHECKLIST (which I use when grading written work). PROOFREAD CAREFULLY to ensure that you do NOT make the mechanical or stylistic errors listed on the checklist!
Your essay should be approximately 850 –1200 words and have a title which suggests the topic/thesis of your paper and should include citations from the literary texts for support. See Basic Steps in Writing a Literature Paper for proper format and information to include.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
