choose archetype, investigate your archetype, find it in three places in Brit Lit stories or literature, then analyze how it works, and judge results=what do you add to your knowledge of Brit Lit, culture, life?
you can use one text that we have studied. the other two must be new.

GEORGE ORWELL'S 10 RULES FOR WRITERS (1946)
1. Never use a metaphor, simile, or other figure of speech that you are used to seeing in print.
2. Never use a long word where a short one will do.
3. If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out.
4. Never use the passive where you can use the active.
5. Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.
6. Break any of these rules sooner than say anything outright barbarous.
