Instructions for paper

At the end of the semester, the students will submit another analytical paper of 2000-2500 words. This paper is meant to demonstrate the student’s understanding of the larger issues in a text given its specific socio-historical context.

By socio-historical analysis we mean how the writer’s gender identity, nationality or race affects their work. This does not mean that the student should merely write about how the play bears a resemblance to the playwright’s life.Students should consider special characteristics of language or imagery that may be particular to a writer, such as the response to Post-World War uncertainty through the breakdown of language in Beckett’s Waiting for Godot. They may also consider larger questions that the themes of the text generate along with the ideological aims of the author; for instance, if Shaw’s interest in social problems in turn of the century England colors his depiction of the characters in Mrs. Warren’s Profession.
