Final Projects

Justice for Lucretia.

For my final project, I decided to create my own afterlife of the story of Lucretia. When I initially read her story, I felt that Lucretia was used as a pawn and her pain was not acknowledged. To help give Lucretia the justice her story deserves, I decided to retell Lucretia’s story from her point of view– with a few plot twists along the way as well!
