MIDTERM ESSAY ENGLISH 2323 L. Daigle, Instructor You should attach your essay to the assignment dropbox in Module 6. Let me know if you have questions about any part of the assignment. YOU MUST USE READING SELECTIONS FROM THE TEXTBOOK. IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE TEXTBOOK, PLEASE CONSULT THE TABLE OF CONTENTS SUPPLIED ON A LINK ON THE HOMEPAGE OF THE COURSE. General Instructions: • Write an essay of at least 750 words (including quotations from the poems and prose selections that you use as support) on ONE of the general topics below. You must discuss at least three reading selections for all topics. • If you use sources in your response (even those I have provided for you), be sure to cite them, using MLA format. Even if you don’t quote directly, you must cite secondary sources. • Quotations from the textbook require only a page number. Do not repeat the author's name in parentheses. Just put the author's name in a sentence in your discussion. • You should choose different poems or prose selections (unless the topic states otherwise) than those you used in your reading responses. • The three examples should be by different authors. • Some of the topics focus on Victorian authors, though for others, you may wish to include writers from the Romantic age as a way of comparing the two literary periods. • The paper should be in essay form with an introduction, thesis statement, body paragraphs, and a conclusion, not a collection of reading responses with sub-headings. • You must use quotations from the reading selections as support for your general ideas. Your examples must show that you have read the literature that you are discussing, not just the author's biography or an online summary. • A brief overview isn't adequate. Again, you must show that you read the selection (poem or prose selection) carefully, and you must show how the body paragraphs support your thesis. • You should not choose long poems or plays, since it would be difficult to discuss these thoroughly in a short paper. (You will have an opportunity to write about them in the research paper.) • You will find the Victorian Web very useful, but be sure to cite it if you use information from it. You should mention this in the paper. • It's acceptable to use "I" in the paper, but you should avoid using "I think" too often. Use "I" only when expressing your personal view. • Use present tense when writing about literature. Here are the general topics: 1. Write an essay of at least 750 words in which you discuss the work of at least one poem by each of three poets who wrote about the human relationship with nature. Your examples may include both Victorians and Romantics. Since there are so many poems about nature by a variety of poets, I'm not including a list, but let me know if you need suggestions. 2. Write an essay of at least 750 words in which you discuss at least one poem or essay by each of three authors who were influenced by changing views of art, especially near the end of the Victorian Age. The poems of the Pre-Raphaelites also reflect this idea, so you may include them. • You should read the introduction to "Late Victorians" (1668), which discusses the idea of "art for art's sake." This movement was called aestheticism: "the last heirs of the Romantics" (1669). Here's the link to the discussion on the Victorian Web: http://www.victorianweb.org/decadence/decadentov.html • Here is a list from the textbook that describes the aesthetes: "melancholy suggestiveness, antibourgeois outrageousness, heady ritualism, world weariness, or mere emotional debauchery" (1669). • Here are some suggestions for reading about this idea: o Preface to The Picture of Dorian Gray (1732) by Oscar Wilde o Walter Pater on the Mona Lisa (La Gioconda" [1542): http://www.bc.edu/bc_org/avp/cas/fnart/fa257/pater_mona.html o Excerpts from John Ruskin's Modern Painters (1338-42) 3. Write an essay of at least 750 words in which you discuss at least one poem by each of three poets or two poets and one prose writer whose work shows that they were influenced by industrialism (for either good or bad). • You may use the same poets that were assigned for the Victorian poets, but you should choose different poems than those you discussed in your reading selections if possible. Several of you responded to "The Cry of the Children" by Elizabeth Barrett Browning in your reading responses; you may wish to include this work in your essay, since it is a very well-known criticism of industrialism and child labor. She wrote the poem after reading the reports of the Children's Employment Commission (below). • You may use one of the prose pieces from "Industrialism: Progress or Decline?" (1580) as one of the three reading selections. Here is a list with links: • o The Children's Employment Commission: From First Report [Child Mine-Worker in Yorkshire] (1582)http://www.rulit.net/books/the-norton-anthology-of-english-literature-volume-2-read-252739-637.html o Charles Dickens: Hard Times [Coketown] (1599) http://www.schooltales.net/hardtimes/coketown_xrpt.html o Henry Mayhew: London Labour and the London Poor [Boy Inmate of the Casual Wards] (1601)http://dl.tufts.edu/catalog/tei/tufts:UA069.005.DO.00079/chapter/c18s5 o Annie Besant: The "White Slavery" of London Match Workers (1603)http://www.wwnorton.com/college/english/nael/victorian/topic_1/besant.htm o Ada Nield Chew: A Living Wage for Factory Girls at Crewe (1606)https://www.wwnorton.com/college/english/nael/victorian/topic_1/chewe.htm • You may wish to use information or quotations from the introduction to "Industrialism: Progress or Decline" (1580) as part of your introduction to your essay. This introduction doesn't count as one of your sources. Here's a link for Norton Topics Online: Industrialism--Progress or Decline? 4. Write an essay of at least 750 words in which you discuss the work of writers who commented on the "woman question" in their work. Suggestions: excerpts from Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Aurora Leigh, especially from Book Two (1144-46); any of the selections from "The 'Woman Question': The Victorian Debate about Gender" (1607) (but not the introduction itself since this is a secondary source, not a primary source). You may also use Mary Wollstonecraft's A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (211). You may wish to include poems and essays written by women: Emily Bronte (1328-1334), Christina Rossetti (1489-1511), Mary Elizabeth Coleridge (1830-48). Here is a list from the discussion of the woman question in the textbook with links: The "Woman Question": The Victorian Debate about Gender (1607) https://www.wwnorton.com/college/english/nael/victorian/topic_2/welcome.htm Again, this is not a primary source--it's an introduction to the subject. It does not count as one of the three reading selections by specific authors. • Sarah Stickney Ellis: From The Women of England: Their Social Duties and Domestic Habits (1610)http://webapp1.dlib.indiana.edu/vwwp/view?docId=VAB7198&chunk;.id=d1e852&brand=vwwp&doc;.view=0&anchor;.id= You will need to look for the following sentence in the link: "To men belongs the potent--(I had almost said omnipotent) consideration of worldly aggrandizement; . . . • Coventry Patmore: From "The Angel in the House" (1613) http://www.victorianweb.org/authors/patmore/angel/2.html (Read the part called "The Paragon.") • Florence Nightingale: From Cassandra [Nothing to Do] (1626)http://www.ecoflourish.com/Inspiration/centuries/authors/Cassandra.html 5. Write an essay of at least 750 words in which you show how the ideas of empire and national identity affected British literature. Your essay should include three examples from both poetry and prose. Here is a list of prose selections from the textbook with links (along with the introduction to the topic): Empire and National Identity (1636) https://www.wwnorton.com/college/english/nael/victorian/topic_4/welcome.htm • Thomas Bablington Macaulay: From Minute on Indian Education (1640)https://www.wwnorton.com/college/english/nael/victorian/topic_4/macaulay.htm • James Anthony Froude: From The English in the West Indies (1650) This can be found in Google books. I'll let you look for it if you wish. Begin your search with this sentence: "Trinidad is not one of our oldest possessions, but we had held it long enough for the old planter civilisation to take root and grow, . . . " • Alfred, Lord Tennyson: "Opening of the Colonial Exhibition by the Queen" (1654) (This is a poem.) http://www.columbia.edu/itc/mealac/pritchett/00generallinks/tennyson/exhibition.html • T. N. Mukharji: From A Visit to Europe (1656) This can also be found in Google books. Just type in this sentence: "Another place of considerable interest to the natives of England was the Indian Bazar . . . " • Joseph Chamberlain: From The True Conception of Imperialism (1662) http://www.bartleby.com/268/5/14.html (Read through paragraph 7.) • Rudyard Kipling: "The White Man's Burden" (1880) 6. Write an essay of at least 750 words in which you find a connecting idea among the poems and prose selections that you have read this semester that relate to your own life. You must be specific about how they relate to your life, and you must use quotations from the poems/prose for support. In other words, you might find reading selections that taught you something you didn't know, selections that taught you more about history, about art, about nature, about life in general. Or you might choose selections that you think are timeless--that are still true today. (These should not be the same poems that you used for your reading responses.) You must include at least three reading selections. I'm listing a few poems that I didn't assign that you might want to consider. Be sure to read a little about the poets to help you understand them. William Ernest Henley: "Invictus" (1659) Rudyard Kipling: "If--" (1882). Ernest Dowson: "Cynara" and "They Are Not Long (1883-4). The last poem is especially fitting as a comment on the end of the Victorian age. Oscar Wilde: "Impressions du Matin" (1722); "The Harlot's House" (1722) The first poem might compare to Wordsworth's "Composed upon Westminster Bridge" and could also relate to industrialism (see topic 1 above). Matthew Arnold: "Dover Beach" (1387) You may send your topic to me ahead of time, and I will give you feedback concerning your plan for the essay. MIDTERM ESSAY ENGLISH 2323 L.
