The Topic Exploration is an analysis of 500−750 words. Choose a topic from one of the module readings. This topic can be anything of interest that is directly relevant to 17th century lyric and narrative poetry or restoration drama. For example, you could look at a historical topic, such as a key historical figure, or you could choose to explore a specific author or play that we have not yet written about in this class. Your essay should both fully explore the topic and should address the implications of your topic as it relates to the literary movement of the time.
