GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR DISCUSSIONS:   Your contributions should be thoughtful and developed.  Answer all parts of the question and use concepts from the course materials.  Use a professional style of communication, with attention to grammar, spelling, and typos; cite your sources.  

Unless your instructor specifies otherwise, choose ONE of the following questions, and give a substantive response to at least two other students.

1.  SUPERNATURAL SHORT STORIES

Both of the short stories explore dimensions of the supernatural.  Using the information you have gathered about literary language, literary genres, and literary terms, compare and contrast the two stories in light of this supernatural theme.  What cultural identities and distinctions inform your analysis?

2.  POETIC JOURNEYS 

Both Keats and Han Shan explore the theme of a journey, symbolic or literary.  Using the information you have gathered about literary language, literary genres, and literary terms, compare and contrast the Keats’ sonnet with three of the Cold Mountain poems in light of this journey theme.  What cultural identities and distinctions inform your analysis?

3.  VARIATIONS ON A THEME:  POETRY AND PROSE

Compare and contrast one of the poems and one of the stories. Identify a common theme between the two. Using the information you have gathered about literary language, literary genres, and literary terms, compare and contrast the two stories in light of this theme.  What cultural identities and distinctions inform your analysis?

4. ANALYZE A POEM OR STORY

Pick one of the poems or stories and analyze it by itself.  Identify a key theme and, using the information you have gathered about literary language, literary genres, and literary terms, carefully analyze and interpret your poem or story as an expression of this theme.  What cultural identities and distinctions inform your analysis?
