Assignment: Read the following primary sources, excerpts from The Travels of John Mandeville (read only sections without a line through them) and Hernan Cortes’s Letter to Charles V. Then, write a paper (1300-1500 words) with a thesis statement and argument backed up with evidence from both primary sources. Your paper will be a response to one of the questions provided, with your answer serving as your thesis statement.
Find a similarity in these two texts. You can find many—a focus on food and feasting; powerful and rich emperors; crazy architecture, exotic animals, just to name a few—but focus on one. Why might Cortes have borrowed from Mandeville? That is, how does emphasizing this element help Cortez win the king’s favor?
