EN203: Summary for plot and theme (FA11)

Page history last edited by Tonya Howe 10 years ago

Summaries can be among the most difficult forms of writing to perfect--most of us want to start at the beginning, touching on everything, just condensing it, all the way until the end. Usually, these kinds of summaries end up being almost as long as the text itself! And, they don't offer any useful approach to the material. A good summary should highlight the main point and important supporting details.


For this assignment, I would like you to, in no more than 2 pages (double spaced, MLA, etc.), craft a summary of Fuente Ovejuna that is organized through what you see as the play's most important theme or topic.  I should get the sense, from your summary, that you know what happened in the play and how those events fold into a larger theme--for instance, consent, community, love, resistance, and so on. If you want to use a few really significant, small quotes, feel free to do so.


Have fun!
