Project #71585 - Analytical Essay – EWRT 2

Analytical Essay – EWRT 2

Final Draft Due Tuesday

3 pages double-spaced

 

 

In this essay, your job will be to analyze the argument in one of the essays we have read this week (either “Animal Pets: Cruelty and Affection” or “The Sexual Politics of Meat”).

 

Choose ONE of these topics to answer as a way to analyze the essay:

 

1. In “The Sexual Politics of Meat,” as we discussed in class, Adams extends her argument about meat’s relation to masculinity to the question of race/ethnicity, and makes a connection between meat and whiteness or Western culture (and therefore, between vegetables/non-meat and non-whiteness). Is this part of Adams’s analysis a strong one? Are you convinced by it? Why or why not?

 

2. In “Animal Pets: Cruelty and Affection” the author describes alterations humans have made to certain companion animals over many centuries – specifically goldfish and dogs. He also suggests that various kinds of domestication processes are by their very nature a kind of cruelty. Do you agree with any part of his argument? Why or why not? If you agree that some “domesticating” acts by humans are cruel and some are not, how do you make your distinction between the cruel ones and the “okay” ones?

 

3. In “Animal Pets,” Tuan claims, “…To some people, a dog’s submission to command is desirable in itself. Power over another being is demonstrably firm and perversely delicious when it is exercised for no particular purpose and when submission to it goes against the victim’s own strong desires and nature” (148).  What is Tuan arguing here? Do you agree or disagree with this idea? What evidence (from the essay, and also from your own experience) can you cite to prove or disprove it?

 

In addressing any of these questions, please make sure you: 

 

-Have an introduction, where you introduce your topic and the essay you are discussing, and briefly present your own conclusion about the essay.

 

-Adequately summarize the part of the author’s argument that is relevant to your question/topic in your own words. What does he/she want to convince the reader of?

 

-Find evidence from the essay that supports your opinion. Part of this is examining and discussing evidence the author uses, and telling us why you consider it valid/convincing or not valid/not very convincing (or maybe a little bit of both). This should probably take a few paragraphs, and should form the bulk of the paper.

 

-Have a conclusion, where you say a little bit more about how your thoughts about the author’s comments/evidence led you to your conclusion.
