Essay(analyze?and?interpret?the?historical?and?cultural?context?for?a broad?survey?of?literature?from?different?times?and?different?cultures,?in?both?western?and?non?western traditions)

Description
In keeping with the aim of World Literature to analyze and interpret the historical and cultural context for a
broad survey of literature from different times and different cultures, in both western and non western
traditions, USING AT LEAST TWO OR MORE OF THE TEXTS AMONG OUR ASSIGNED READINGS,
IN A WELL ORGANIZED ACADEMIC ESSAY OF 750 WORDS THE STUDENT SHOULD COMPARE
AND CONTRAST THE VALUES AND BEHAVIORAL PATTERNS OF THE CULTURES THAT ARE
REPRESENTED IN THE TEXTS THAT THE STUDENT HAS SELECTED.
[FOR EXAMPLE S SAKE ONLY, THE CULTURES THAT A STUDENT CHOOSES MAY BE THE KORAN
CONTRASTED WITH SAPPHO OR THE OLD CHIEF MSHLANGA ; OR ELIOT OR MAHFOUZ
CONTRASTED WITH ACHEBE; OR MEDEA WITH HAMLET OR SOR JUANA; OR DOUGLASS WITH
ANTIGONE OR ST. AUGUSTINE. BE IMAGINATIVE AND CHALLENGE YOURSELF. THE MORE
CONTRAST THE ESSAY GETS INTO THE MIX, THE BETTER. BUT NO MATTER WHAT THE CASE
MAY BE, THE STUDENT SHOULD WRITE THE ESSAY ENTIRELY IN THE THIRD PERSON, IN GOOD
OBJECTIVE/ACADEMIC FASHION, DRAWING ON TEXTUAL EVIDENCE, AS WE HAVE BEEN
DOING ALL SEMESTER. (A PERSONAL TIP: IF IT LL HELP, THINK OF YOURSELF AS A
NEWSPAPER REPORTER OR HISTORIAN. THE READER ISN’T INTERESTED IN YOU AS THE
WRITER PERSONALLY, BUT IN WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE CONTRASTING CULTURAL
EXPERIENCES, ETC., THAT YOU ARE WRITING ABOUT.)
