ENGL 4336/99 Spring 2007 Second Essay Assignment

Back to the Syllabus

The second formal essay in 4336/99 this semester will be a comparison paper, like the first essay. The scope is slightly broader, however. Your task is to compare Faulkner's Unvanquished with Walker's Jubilee. There are many possible points of comparison: treatment of the politics of the War, treatment of race and Reconstruction; narrative technique; treatment of gender; themes of migration and displacement. Choose a relatively focussed topic for comparison and write a six-page-maximum essay that makes use of concrete examples from each text. Always cite sources fully.

The second formal essay is due (note new date!) on Thursday 18 April. All other reading and discussion elements of the schedule remain the same.
