Welcome to our last week!

Hello students!  You all did a great job on the drama presentations.  Now, your final blog posting will need to be one of the following: a) a possible final exam "short answer" question, or b) a possible final exam "essay" question.  Please designate which you are writing.  Be sure to consider our dominant themes, which we've discussed all term, and feel free to compose questions that would require a student to think about two or more texts simultaneously and draw conclusions or insights.

Short Answer:
In Hawthorne's "Young Goodman Brown," the protagonist takes a journey into the forest and sees people who are respected in his Puritan community participating in an evil ritual. Goodman Brown soon blacks out and when he wakes up, he isn't sure if what he saw had really happened. Judging from how he lived out the rest of his life, does it really matter if the events of the forest were reality?

Short answer:
Early on in the class we read two short stories entitled "Girl" and "Samuel". Both these short stories discuss children, however they carry different meanings. Compare and contrast these stories.

Short Answer:
What dominant themes present in Hamlet have helped make it such a long lasting play? Why do we still read Hamlet?

Short Answer:
Now that the semester is over and we have read many various types of so-called literature, has your definition of what literature is changed or not? Choose any one piece of literature that we have read this semester and explain how it fits your new/old definition of literature.

Essay Question:
Certain works are generally defined as classics because they contain themes that remain prevalent despite generational differences. Choose one piece we have read and discuss what theme(s) have characterized it as a classic, its personal relevance or relevance to the world today, and some of the difficulties modern day readers may face when reading the piece and how these are overcome.

Choose one piece of literature that you enjoyed this semester and transform it from its current form, either poem, short story, or play, to another form. Keep in mind the specific aspects of form classification that we have discussed this semester. Also, try to keep the original intent of the author.

short answer:
This semester we have read many different stories by different authors all with different backgrounds. Have you noticed an overall theme to the stories? If so explain in depth and using evidence from teh text to support your answer.

Essay

Throughout the semester we saw a number of parent-child relationships: Desiree's Baby, Andre's Mother, Fences, Hamlet, Horse Dealer's Daughter, Misery, Daddy, etc. Some authors, like Chekhov, are famous for reflecting negative parental relations in their work. One can assume that the bad relationships in their stories reflect those in their lives. Does the internal conflict of a bad relationship with a parent give the writers inspiration, or is the writers' inspiration completely separate from their relationships with their folks? In addition to trying to prove your view, you must attempt to make a reasonable argument against the alternative.

short answer

Discuss the role of character in an allegory. Do characters shape the moral? Or does the purpose of the story change the characters? Use contrasts such as, Hamlet to indecision or the characters from Andre's Mother to gay rights.

Short Answer

In the play "Fences," troy pushes Cory harder than his other son. Do you think this is because Troy doesn't want Cory to be better than him or do you think that Troy cares a lot about Cory succeeding in the future? Use an example from the play to support your choice.

Essay Question:
At the beginning of the semester, we sought to answer the question, "What is literature?" One of the answers we discussed was that literature is often the author trying to convey his or her opinion and viewpoint of the current society to the reader. Select two works we've covered this semester and compare and contrast the authors' intentions in writing what they wrote. How are their goals similar? How are they different?

-Aaron Bentley

Heather said...

Short answer:
What aspect of a play--such as the setting, plot, or tone--in your opinion, is the most critical to this type of literary work and why?

Santiago said...

Essay:

Over the course the semester, there have been several archetypes that are shared amongst stories, plays, and poems. Pick two works of literature that share similar archetypes and discuss how the archetypes lead to the final resolution whether the resolution be similar or different across stories.

-Santiago

aoliphant said...

In the poetry section there are a few songs such as "Eleanor Rigby", and "the Battle Hymn of the Republic" to demonstrate the heavy use of poetry in song. William Shakespeare we learned also use's poetry in his plays. How does the use of poetry improve these works? what other mediums of literature use poetry, and to what benefit?

Alejandro said...

During our readings in class, we discussed many forms of literary art as well as other forms of art medium. Which form of art, from short stories to plays to films, would you say is easier to create themes and characters with. Give examples of how you feel different forms of art succeed or fall short at developing character and theme with respect to other forms.
