Survey of World Literature ENG 225

Write a 1000 word essay in which you evaluate the frame narrative form. Consider the three frame narratives we read in this module and evaluate the effectiveness and purpose of the structure. Why do you think each author would have chosen to write in this way? Is the frame necessary? Does it contribute to the overall tone, or does it get in the way of the “story”? You must draw upon all three texts to support your claims and integrate relevant quotations from each using MLA format.
