QUOTE ANALYSIS #1 Instructions: Choose ONE of the primary source excerpts below and write a short paragraph analysis (200-250 words) in response to the accompanying question. This is a formal writing assignment. Make sure to write in complete sentences and use spell check! Your response should be double-spaced.
Quote #1: From Code of Hammurabi At that time Anu and Bel called me, Hammurabi, the exalted prince, the worshiper of the gods, to cause justice to prevail in the land, to destroy the wicked and the evil, to prevent the strong from oppressing the weak, to go forth like the sun over the black-head race [Babylonians were dark-haired], to enlighten the land and to further the welfare of the people. . . . When Marduk sent me to rule the people and to bring help to the country, I established law and justice in the land and promoted the welfare of the people.
What does this quote reveal about notions of justice in Babylon? Where does justice come from? What is the role of the king in enforcing justice? QUOTE ANALYSIS #2: INTERPRETATION VS. ANALYSIS For this week’s assignment, we will be considering the difference between INTERPRETATION and ANALYSIS. As you may recall, a convincing analytic paragraph includes five main components:
1. Claim: The topic sentence introduces the argument of the paragraph.
2. Context: Background information for the evidence.
3. Evidence: Quote from the text.
4. Interpretation: Explanation of the quote.
5. Analysis: Demonstrate of how the interpretation supports the original claim made in the topic sentence.
Instructions: Rather than writing a complete analytical paragraph, complete this worksheet by providing (1) an interpretation and (2) an analysis of the quote below. Write directly in the Word document and upload your worksheet to Canvas as .doc or .pdf attachment. Canvas is not compatible with .pages.
Quote: From Epic of Gilgamesh, p. 95
‘Ea opened his mouth to speak,saying to the hero Enlil:“You, the sage of the gods, the hero, how could you lack counsel and bring on the Deluge?On him who transgresses, inflict the crime!On him who does wrong, inflict his wrongdoing! […]Instead of your causing the Deluge,a lion could have risen, and diminished the people!”
Prompt: What does this quote reveal about Mesopotamians views of divinity? 1. INTERPRETATION: Provide an interpretation of the evidence by explaining what is happening in the quote: Who are Ea and Enlil? What did Enlil do to deserve Ea’s criticism? What is Ea suggesting that Enlil should have done as an alternative? You may want to review Module 3.1.1 Mythology in Mesopotamia.
2. ANALYSIS: Use your interpretation of the evidence to respond to the prompt: What does this quote reveal about Mesopotamian views of divinity?
