I’m working on a Literature question and need guidance to help me study.
Use at least three specific examples from assigned texts to show how we see characters reflecting on tradition or arguing for or against particular traditional behaviors or customs. What traditions are represented in these texts? What do the authors seem to suggest, based on these examples, about how we adhere to or argue for change in traditions? Can any of the reflection on these past traditions still apply to the way we view traditions today?
