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.

From The Temple
The Altar
A broken ALTAR, Lord, thy servant rears,
Made of a heart, and cemented with tears:
Whose parts are as thy hand did frame;
No workman’s tool hath touched the same.
AHeart alone
Is such a stone,
As nothing but
Thy power doth cut.
Wherefore each part
Of my hard heart
Meets the frame,
To praise they name:
That, if I chance to hold my peace,
These stones to praise thee may not cease.
Oh let thy blessed sacrifice be mine,
And sanctify this ALTAR to be thine.
