Write a 2-3 page response essay that discusses one work (or several if it's poetry) by one of the writers in the period we are discussing for this module. You cannot choose a writer from the reading list. Rather, you must choose another writer from the period assigned for this module. In other words, look over the authors listed under the Harlem Renaissance in the table of contents in your book and choose one who was NOT on your reading list. Respond by discussing what you thought about the work, how it relates to the Harlem Renaissance, and what lines/sentences are most poignant and why. This can be written in first person, but try to be critical in your discussion. I'm looking for quotes from the information on the Renaissance and the particular work by the author you've chosen. But I'm mainly interested in your reflection about the selected work.
Use MLA format for the essay. Do not use outside sources. Include your impression of the work, why it's important to the literary period, how it reflects the literary period, and specific style/format used by the author. Quote from the work itself and from the information on the literary period. Use MLA format for quotes and include a Works Cited page.
You may choose to discuss more than one poem if you choose a poet.
For help with MLA, see the following site:
Jean Toomer (p. 1141-1164); Zora Neale Hurston (p. 1029-1050); Langston Hughes (p. 1302-1324)
