influenced his or her writing.
Use the following topic areas to guide your search:
- Early life
- Adult life
- Major events
- Political views
- Major works
- Recurring themes
Compose a 2-3 page paper that discusses the following questions:
- What aspects of the authors life seem to have influenced thematic, character, or plot choices in the authors writing?

Utilize the EUO Library (Links to an external site.) or
the web for your research. Cite any sources you use in APA format. Feel
free when answering these questions to use examples from the works we
have read to help support what you find in your biographical research.
