Using the 2 texts, discuss memory functions with them. How does memory redefine our understanding of heroism? Without summarizing the texts, consider what memories do the heroes conjure. How do these memories govern each hero, or impact his or her course of action? Remember to remark upon how each piece individually deals with memory. The assignment is not to verify that remembrance exists within the texts, but rather to form an argument about its thematic purpose within the 2 pieces. Avoid using passive constructions.
