The Rape of Lock Apply
(Info you need to read is HERE)
For this apply, we will focus on allusion. This is one of the important tools Pope used to create the lofty, embellished tone in The Rape of Lock. We see allusions all over our media: in songs, billboards, books, comics, commercials, movies, and more. Identify three allusions to literature from the media around you. Then, choose the strongest of the three for your response.
Then, write a 100-200 word response. First, explain what an allusion is and the experience you went through of finding or noticing the illusions you found. Include these points:
- Once you began looking, was it easy or difficult to find allusions to literature?
- Where did you find your allusion?
- What literature is the allusion referring to?
