Compare your manuscript with other texts of a similar genre from the same period. What do you know about this literary form? How much does your document conform to literary conventions? How does it differ? What does this comparison tell you about this particular text? Your paper should contain specific references to traits of your manuscript; that is your discussion of genre should help you to read this text and your paper should include a close literary analysis of a few short passages from your manuscript.  (5 pages)
