Project #88077 - Engl 2302

English 2302 – World Literature 

 

You are to write an academic essay choosing one of the themes below.

 

5-page Paper 

A Works Cited page in MLA format.

 

Learning Outcomes Emphasized:  take useful notes; come up with a clear thesis; an engaging introduction; multiple, focused supporting paragraphs; a logical and effective organization of ideas; and a conclusion that opens up the argument to wider application; develop well-qualified claims with reasons and with evidence that are appropriate to an academic audience; practice invention, planning, drafting, revising, editing, and proofreading essays

 

Assignment:  Write multi-paragraph argument essay on one of the topics. Your argument should provide clear reasons why you have a stronger case, as if you were a lawyer in court. You should also have a thesis or main point in your essay. 

 

In other words, here are some of the parts of your essay:

1) An introduction
2) Your thesis and main point (part of the introduction)
3) Subtopics (2 to 5 of them)
4) Included as part of the Subtopics: Other people’s ideas on the issue
5) A conclusion, in which the thesis is again stated

 

How you will complete this essay in steps:

 

You will write a 1-paragraph statement of your topic. I will read and return these to you in email over the weekend so you can use the ideas as you work on your draft. You will hand in a 3-page Rough Draft, which I will not grade, nor will I provide written feedback on it. During that week, however, I will have extra office hours, and I strongly encourage you to come. I also encourage you to use the Writing Center. A week later, you will hand in the Essay itself.

 

Option 1: Comparison of Sor JuanaAphra Behn, and Pandita Ramabai. Women and Writing

(You may choose to write about only two of these three.)

Some guide questions: (you may or may not use these)

• These authors are writing in three different periods and placesranging from the 1600s in Mexico to the 1800s in IndiaYet they are all female writers who have to contend with a culture that limits the power of women. Is there any discernible pattern as to how they are succeeding (and perhaps failing) to get their message across to their societies?
• These authors portray the lives of women in varying ways. Also, they have varying messages. For example, Sor Juana argues for more education for women, using religious reasons, although she is also critiquing religion in some waysRamabai also argues for more education of women, defending Christian values and partially depreciating Hindu ones in the process. What are these authors suggesting about women’s roles, and does religion affect what they are arguing for?
• What is Aphra Behn saying about women’s roles? She focuses her tale on a man, Oroonoko, though she does also reveal her ideas on women. For example, she writes about the bride of Oroonoko, Imoinda, pointing out that in their culture, the women worship their man, and that it is appropriate for a wife to die with her husband (242).At the same time, Behn herself is an example of an independent woman writer. How do these ideas fit together—if they do?
