Goffman and Wideman: comparative analysis on prison literature

Using Erving Goffman's "Essays on the Social Situations of Mental Patients and Other Inmates" write a critical, literary analytic essay (with good close reading) on how Goffman's arguments about prison culture are both illuminated and denounced in John Wideman's memoir "Brothers and Keepers". --how Goffman's arguments about "civil death" and "social death" are revealed in Wideman's experience of visits to the prison to see his brother Robby, and how "the individual" and "the self" is completely mortified through imprisonment life. Also, discuss how Goffman's argument can be denounced or seen in another light/perspective as Robby also undergoes a new awakening through his imprisonment experience. He is 'reborn' into a better person - describe how this is so using literary devices and close reading of the phrases and paragraphs. And elaborate on what kind of implications this has on America's imprisonment/incarceration system.
