Comparative Essay

Final Draft soft copy of Comparison Essay Due by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 24th via Léa. Hard copy of in-class-writing draft due on Monday, April 25th NOTE: YES, each of the in our time vignettes counts as one text, each story in In Our Time and The Thing They Carried counts as one text, and Maus IIcounts as a separate text from Maus I. AND you are required to discuss only 5 texts total, you SHOULD touch on works by 3 or more authors (to show breadth of knowledge/reading), and you MAY discuss MORE than 5 texts (for possible extra credit). Books : Maus 1 Maus 2 The Things They Carried The Bluest Eye Persepolis 1. Many of the works we have read this term have introduced us to characters who appear to have experienced some sort of psychological trauma. Looking at Maus I and at least four other texts (with each of the in our time vignettes counting as one text, each story in In Our Time and The Thing They Carried counting as one text, and Maus II counting as a separate text from Maus I), discuss how trauma is shown not only to transform the individuals directly affected by it, but also to impact those close to the affected characters more indirectly. You may also wish to consider how these various authors represent trauma itself through language and other means since it is often considered “unrepresentable” linguistically. Texts: “Indian Camp,” “Soldier’s Home,” “chapter 2,” “chapter 3,” “chapter 6,” “chapter 7,” “chapter 8,” “chapter 10”?, “chapter 16,” “chapter 17,” The Bluest Eye, Maus II, “The Things They Carried,” “Love,” “Spin,”… 2. All of the works we have studied this semester – whether fictional, non-fictional, semi-autobiographical, or somewhere in-between – have made reference in various direct and indirect ways either to significant historical events or to actual specific cultural products in order to remind us of the “truthfulness” of the experiences they recount using varying degrees of “fictionalization.” Looking at “On the Quai at Smyrna” and at least four other texts (with each of the in our time vignettes counting as one text, each story in In Our Time and The Thing They Carried counting as one text, and Maus II counting as a separate text from Maus I), discuss how and why each author tries to reconstruct “reality” subjectively and/or objectively choosing either to provide or withhold direct commentary on his or her own “realist” or “documentary” methods. 3. Nearly all of the works we have encountered this term present us with characters who perform various kinds of “work” – be it in the service of others more powerful than they are, in the service of their country, in the service of their family, and/or in the service of themselves. Looking at “On the Rainy River” and at least four other texts (with each of the in our timevignettes counting as one text, each story in In Our Time and The Thing They Carried counting as one text, and Maus II counting as a separate text from Maus I), discuss the degree to which and/or the ways in which each character values his or her own varied labours, and speculate about why each of them may feel the way they do about their efforts. 4. Many of the works we have read this term have dealt either explicitly or more subtly with issues of race and racial discrimination OR RELIGION. Looking at The Bluest Eye and at least four other texts (with each of the in our time vignettes counting as one text, each story in In Our Time and The Thing They Carried counting as one text, and Maus II counting as a separate text from Maus I), discuss how each author choose to foreground race, racism, racial difference, race-consciousness, etc. (OR RELIGION) and try to articulate the overall message(s) you think they are trying to convey to certain specific or general audiences. 5. All the works we have read this term have shown us how significantly the experiences of men and women can differ even when they are living in the same time period and occupying the same class. Looking at “Soldier’s Home” and at least four other texts (with each of the in our time vignettes counting as one text, each story in In Our Time and The Thing They Carriedcounting as one text, and Maus II counting as a separate text from Maus I), explain not only how Hemingway and others call our attention to these disparate experiences, but also how they represent these gender conflicts in ways that suggest either a desire for change or a return to the past. Be sure to make an overall claim about your topic (in 1-3 sentences) that mentions all the works you will discuss in the opening paragraph before going on to highlight similarities and differences between the works (especially as you move from a discussion of one text to the next). But also be sure to give each work its own independent treatment. Your essay is expected to be between 1000 and 1500 words, but I will not penalize you if you write fewer words with concision, precision, and clarity or more words with pertinent references to more than four texts. Include an exact word count of the body of the essay itself at the end. You will NOT be expected to quote extensively from your sources, provide parenthetical citations, or include a “Works Cited” with your essay. In other words, model your essay after the sample I distribute in terms of format. You should, however, be as specific as possible with your examples, use paraphrasing efficiently, and avoid generalizations that you cannot support with some evidence. Like your Mid-Term Essay, this final paper should have a traditional header (no cover page needed) and a title of your choosing.
