TASK:

READ OVER THE FOLLOWING ESSAY PROMPTS, AND THINK ABOUT WHICH ONE SEEMS MOST INTERESTING TO YOU.

THIS ESSAY NEEDS TO BE THESIS DRIVEN AND ARGUMENTATIVE. MEANING YOU NEED TO DO MORE THAN JUST POINT OUT WHAT IS OCCURRING IN TWO TEXTS; YOU NEED TO BE POINTING OUT ASPECTS IN TWO TEXTS TO PROVE A LARGER POINT OF HOW THE TEXTS WORK TOGETHER OR EXEMPLIFY SOME OF THE CONCEPTS DISCUSSED IN CLASS.

ESSAY PROMPTS: (CHOOSE 1 OF THE FOLLOWING) (#5)

  1. ANALYZE THE PLOT STRUCTURE IN BOTH BALDWIN AND OATES’ SHORT STORIES. WHILE BALDWIN’S SHORT STORY BEGINS IN MEDIAS RES, OATES’ SHORT STORY PLOT IS MUCH MORE STRAIGHTFORWARD AND TRADITIONAL. HOW DO THESE SPECIFIC PLOT STRUCTURES SHAPE OUR VIEW OF THE STORIES’ MAIN CHARACTERS? HOW DO THESE PLOT STRUCTURES HELP TO DEVELOP AND REINFORCE THE STORIES’ MAIN THEMES?

  2. CHOOSE ANY TWO SHORT STORIES FROM THE FOLLOWING: “GIRL,” “THE LESSON,” AND/OR “HILLS LIKE WHITE ELEPHANTS.” THEN EXPLORE HOW EACH STORY’S CENTRAL THEME IS SHAPED BY ITS RESPECTIVE NARRATION. A WAY TO LOOK AT THIS QUESTION IS TO ENVISION EACH OF THESE STORIES AS BEING WRITTEN IN A DIFFERENT NARRATIVE STYLE. WHAT WOULD BE LOST IF THE NARRATIVE STYLE SHIFTED? WHY?

  3. LOOKING AT “CATHEDRAL” AND “RECITATIF,” ANALYZE HOW EACH NARRATOR’S PERSPECTIVE IS SHAPED BY THOSE AROUND THEM, SPECIFICALLY ROBERT AND ROBERTA, RESPECTIVELY. WHAT DO THESE TWO STORIES IMPLY IN REGARDS TO THE NATURE OF TRUTH, PERSPECTIVE, AND/OR THE EXISTENCE OF PURE INDIVIDUALISM?

  4. COMPARE THE USE OF SETTING IN CHOPIN’S “THE STORY OF AN HOUR” AND TAN’S “A PAIR OF TICKETS.” THAT MEANS YOU HAVE TO IDENTIFY PLACES WHERE THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THE SETTING AND ANALYZE THE IMPORTANCE OF THAT SETTING TO THE STORY’S LARGER THEMES. IN THESE STORIES, HOW DOES SETTING WORK TO SHAPE PLOT, POINT OF VIEW, THEME, OR CHARACTER.

  5. WRITE AN ESSAY COMPARING THE WAY STEPHEN CRANE’S “THE OPEN BOAT” AND NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE’S “THE BIRTH-MARK PORTRAY THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HUMAN BEINGS AND NATURE. WHAT IS SIMILAR AND DIFFERENT ABOUT THE NATURE-RELATED THEMES OF THE TWO STORIES?
