This week, we are delving into how authors use their literary works as social commentary. This can be a general commentary related to what is going on in society such as in Frankenstein; as a means to enact change such as in The Jungle; or as telling of an experience, such as in Persepolis.
Choose one of the three works used as examples in Module 4 course content (Frankenstein, The Jungle, or Persepolis). If you have works of your own that you wish to use, let me know ahead of time.
Although I am not opposed to you choosing a different work outside of these, I think these three are good representations of three different types of literary criticisms. I provided videos and/or excerpts of each of these works in the course content area of the course. You are welcome to use this excerpt or find another one online (they are easy to find). I do not expect you to read the entire work although you are welcome to!
In your Primary Post answer the following:
What literary work did you choose and who is the author?
Provide a brief 2-3 sentence summary of the work in your own words.
Why is this work considered a social commentary/literary criticism?
Give at least three examples of literary devices (i.e. theme, symbolism, etc) that support the idea that the author is commenting on. For example, if you chose Frankenstein, the author has many different themes such as the dangers of science, isolation, creation. How does the author convey one of these themes?
I Have attached the reading along with the questions that needs to be answered. Please provide good answers along with citations. My professor does not accept any work unless there are direct quotes from the reading and a page number to show where you found the quote to back up your answer. Please provide AT LEAST 2 quotes PER ANSWER!!!! This is CRUCIAL. APA style is CRUCIAL.
I tip well. 🙂 My professor also added some notes you should read before starting the questions, I guess their just tips and formats. Its on the page with the questions.
