2. Answer ONE of these three questions:

a. Wislawa Szymborska, Polish poet and essayist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature said, “You can find the entire cosmos lurking in its least remarkable objects.” Help us see something ordinary in an extraordinary light.

b. “This is what history consists of. It’s the sum total of all the things they aren’t telling us,” wrote Don DeLillo in Libra. What is history, who are “they,” and what aren’t they telling us?
