John Winthrop famously described the Puritan settlement in North America in Biblical terms, calling it a city on a hill. Pick two authors weve covered this semester, and explain how they referenced that metaphor while also changing and adapting it to suit different times and different concerns. Be sure to explain what Winthrop meant by the image, so that you can then clearly explain how your two authors modify that image and that meaning.
