I first wrote this essay as a timed forty minute in class essay.  My teacher then had us all rewrite it at home after checking it against a rubric.  The prompt for this essay was to write about the social ills that are prevalent in  Pride and Prejudice and show how they highlight the novels major themes and how they relate to the work as a whole.

I wrote this research paper my junior year in high school.  I wrote the paper about Edith Wharton and three of her books:The House of Mirth, The Age of Innocence, and Ethan Frome.  I wrote this paper to describe the way in which Wharton reveals the struggle between self-fulfillment and societal constraint in order to advise readers to achieve independence and to pursue happiness of their own accord, through her writing.
