essay about stranger in the village by James Baldwin and rewriting Teju Cole

persuasive/critical analyses 3-4 Pages, 12 pt. font, Times New Roman, double-spaced. James Baldwin's essay "Stranger in the Village" is aptly named. Baldwin himself, despite being known to the villagers in Leukerbad, continues to be a stranger to the white Europeans. Though they know his name, what we looks like, where he goes, Baldwin can't be "known" to them. His identity as a black American is so foreign to them--abstracted by eons of folklore and racism--that Baldwin can't be Baldwin. He can only be, as he says, a "sight." In your persuasive/critical analysis essay, I want you use both Baldwin's text and Teju Cole's "Rereading 'Stranger in the Village'" to argue your position on the following question: James Baldwin's reaction to the Empire State Building, paintings by Michelangelo, and poetry by Shakespeare is one of alienation. Baldwin feels that he has no connection to or ownership over these works because he is not white--and the artists and builders are. He feels, in a sense, excluded. Teju Cole thinks differently. To Cole, art that is made from white artists can belong to him. Art, he says, belongs to everyone. Which mode of thinking, if either, is correct to you? Why? Your essay must: Have a clear thesis/claim (the argument) Provide necessary background information (summary) Provide evidence from the text to support your claim (quotation) Incorporate your own logic and analysis of the evidence Have a fluid and logical structure Answer the age-old question: SO WHAT? You are welcome to use up to 2 related contemporary examples, if you so want.
