NO plagiarism. I need a 100% original paper. If you are not familiar with the Shahnameh epic and the poem, Dante’s inferno please do not take on this assignment. You will need a good understanding of both. Please choose one of the people noted below from Dante’s Inferno to compare to Rustem and let me know which character you choose. I put those characters in bold. You will basically be comparing each hero’s values and their society’s values to one another based upon on what each society considered a hero.
For this assignment, write a 4-5 paragraph essay in the same manner as you did for Writing Assignment #1 on one of the topics below.

1. Unit 1B’s introduction to the Five Great Themes of World Literature states with regard to the hero: “The surest way to understand what a culture of the past most values is to focus on what it considers heroic, in that a culture recognizes its heroes as embodying its most important ideas, the values that are essential.” Discuss the diverse values that our two epic heroes, Rustem and Dante, embody. Which values embodied by these epic heroes are endorsed or celebrated by their societies? Are any of their values condemned or rejected by their societies? Illustrate your discussion with specific examples of the heroes’ obligations to their societies and what their values reflect about their cultures.
From the Shahnameh your essay will of course focus on Rustem; for Dante, you have many options, but the following characters and their sad stories make especially good choices for the subject (but you can choose others if you wish; just one will do): Virgil, Francesca, Pier della Vigna, Brunetto Latini, Guido de Montefeltro.
