Unit 1 – AP Q3 In-Class Writing (FRQ)

Prompt: One of the strongest human drives seems to be a desire for power. Write an essay in which you discuss how a character in a novel or a drama struggles to free himself or herself from the power of others or seeks to gain power over others. Be sure to demonstrate in your essay how the author uses this power struggles to enhance the meaning of the work.

For this piece, I chose to write about Lord of the Flies by William Golding.
