AT THE BOTTOM ARE LINKS TO ALL LITERATURE TO CHOOSE FROM Below is a description of Essay 5 which will be due by our last week of class, Thursday, Dec. 15. For Essay 5 I’ve decided to have you write a paper in which you choose two of the literary works, and compare and contrast some of their literary elements. Essay 5 will be longer, five-seven pages (or 1250-1500) words, and will require outside research. You will again be conducting “literary analysis” of some of the literary elements you find, but this time will use it to compare and contrast the stories. Areas of possible research include literary theory, the historical background of the piece and/or its author, and/or a look at what literary scholars have written about the piece. The primary sources for Essay 5 will be the two short stories you have chosen. Your essay should also cite at least one source from the COD academic databases, and one other source. Feel free to use the same fiction work for both essays. For example, if Essay 4 is a literary analysis of “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien, Essay 5 could be a comparison and contrast essay based on “The Things They Carried,” and “The Red Convertible” by Louise Erdrich. Below is a list of the short fiction works we are studying. Choose two of these stories on which to base your comparison/contrast essay: “Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin “Desiree’s Baby” by Kate Chopin “The Red Convertible” by Louise Erdrich “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien “Good Country People” by Flannery O’Connor “A Good Man is Hard to Find” by Flannery O’Connor “A Worn Path” by Eudora Welty “Two Kinds” by Amy Tan “In Search of Our Mother’s Gardens” by Alice Walker Below is a list of literary elements we have been discussing. Choose one or two of these elements and create a thesis based on comparing and contrasting. setting character plot narration/point of view literary devices–imagery, simile, metaphor, foreshadowing, symbolism, flashbacks, motifs tone “The Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin https://archive.vcu.edu/english/engweb/webtexts/hour/ “Desiree’s Baby” by Kate Chopin https://www.katechopin.org/pdfs/desirees-baby.pdf “The Red Convertible” by Louise Erdrich https://www.oneida-boces.org/site/handlers/filedownload.ashx?moduleinstanceid=1719&dataid=1933&FileName=The%20Red%20Convertible.pdf “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien https://www.cengage.com/custom/static_content/OLC/s76656_76218lf/obrien.pdf “Good Country People” by Flannery O’Connor https://repositorio.ufsc.br/bitstream/handle/123456789/163600/Good%20Country%20People%20-%20Flannery%20O%27Connor.pdf?sequence=1&isAllowed=y “A Good Man is Hard to Find” by Flannery O’Connor: https://repositorio.ufsc.br/bitstream/handle/123456789/160332/A%20good%20man%20is%20hard%20to%20find%20-%20Flannery%20O%27Connor.pdf “A Worn Path” by Eudora Welty https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1941/02/a-worn-path/376236/ “Two Kinds” by Amy Tan https://www.rtsd.org/cms/lib/PA01000218/Centricity/Domain/319/TwoKindsfulltext.pdf “In Search of Our Mother’s Gardens” by Alice Walker http://l-adam-mekler.com/walker_in_search.pdf
