1. Choose one (1) writing prompt from the three provided for each story. As a consequence, you will be writing two essaysâ€“one for â€œA Good Man is Hard to Find,â€ and â€œA Rose for Emily.â€ 2. Each essay should be at least 500 words (approx.. two pages) in length. 3. Upload in Canvas both essays as a single MS Word document. To do this, you need to insert a page break to separate each essay. Each essay should follow MLA standards for essay formatting and documentation. No Works Cited page is requiredâ€“only intext citing. Entitle your essays with an appealing title. Focus your essay with a thesis statement that encompasses an assertive claim and supporting reasons for the claim. ï› Writing Prompts: Choose ONE from each of the two stories to focus your essay responses. â€œA Good Man is Hard to Findâ€ (Flannery Oâ€™Connor). 1. Argue your position on the role of the storyâ€™s narrator. Does the narrator provide an objective (impartial) or biased viewpoint and portrayal of the characters and events in the story? Intext cite at least three passages in the story to support the credibility of your response. 2. Argue how these passages of dialog spoken by the The Misfit contribute to our understanding of The Misfit in terms of his past and present behaviors: a. â€œI found out the crime donâ€™t matter. You can do one thing or you can do another, kill a man or take a tire off his car, because sooner or later youâ€™re going to forget what it was you done and just be punished for it.â€ b. â€œJesus thrown everything off balance. It was the same case with Him as with me except He hadn’t committed any crime and they could prove I had committed one because they had the papers on me. Of course they never shown me my papers. That’s why I sign myself now. I said long ago, you get you a signature and sign everything you do and keep a copy of it. Then you’ll know what you done and you can hold up the crime to the punishment and see do they match and in the end you’ll have something to prove you ain’t been treated right. I call myself the Misfit because I can’t make what all I done wrong fit what all I gone through in punishment.â€ 3. There are varying interpretations and meanings that are attributed to The Grandmotherâ€™s touching The Misfit in the final scene of the short story. Argue at least two varying meanings that you believe emanate from The Grandmotherâ€™s touching The Misfit. Intext cite the story if you believe it will strengthen the credibility of your claims. â€œA Rose for Emilyâ€ (William Faulkner) 1. Based on your critical interpretation of the short story, argue if the townspeople in any ways or by any means co-enabled Emilyâ€™s progressive isolation, alienation, and downfall. Intext the story several times to support the legitimacy of your claims. 2. Often overlooked in discussions of the short story, there is one character that seemingly sees and knows everything that occurs in the Grierson home. Yet, this character is only mentioned briefly by the narrator. Argue why you believe this character was portrayed only tangentially and what might this characterization contribute to our appreciation and interpretation of the meanings of the story. Intext cite the story several times to prove the merit of your critical claims. 3. It would be very convenient to argue that Emily Grierson is a sociopath whose character behaves in ways attributable to her progressive sociopathy. However, as students of literature and critical thinking, we are not clinical psychologists that are conversant with varied aberrant behaviors and their clinical diagnoses. After all, even fictional characters are flesh and blood, created by authors with human feelings, personalities, and intellects. From the viewpoint of a student of literature (which you are), argue what you believe are those situations that affected Emilyâ€™s psyche and caused her to behave in the ways she did. Intext cite the short story several times to bolster the strength of your critiques.
