Renaissance Essays: Sir Walter Ralegh

These essays are not intended to replace library research. They are here to
show you what others think about a given subject, and to perhaps spark an
interest or an idea in you. To take one of these essays, copy it, and to pass
it off as your own is known as plagiarism—academic dishonesty which will
result (in every university I've heard tell of) in suspension or dismissal from
the university. Not only are your professors as technology-savvy as you are,
they will not tolerate theft of another's intellectual efforts.
