This essay is the final exam in the course and I need you to follow all the instructions below.
– Here are 3 instruction questions to be written in the essay. Question 1 and 2 use works from Literature: A Portable Anthology, Third Edition. Question 3 use work from Maus book I and II.
1- Choose two elements of fiction from” writing about stories in LITERATURE A PORTABLE ANTHOLOGY THIRD EDITION” (page1197) and explain how the element is applied in four works of short fiction. (for example, explain how point of view is used in Hemingway, Hawthorne, Faulkner, O’brien.) You will have to reference eight works of fiction to answer this. Use evidence from the stories.
2- Review the elements of poetry from “Writing about Poems,in same gook above”(1209) to analyze two poems. Pay close attention to line, diction, and sound. Use evidence from the poems.
3- Art Speigelman’s decision to use the comic book genre to write Maus is controversial. Some say it demeans the seriousness of the Holocaust experience while others say that Maus has elevated the comic form. Think about all the ways Maus can be read, as a comic book, a graphic novel, a memoir, an autobiography, an oral history an allegory. It can be read as fiction or non-fiction. How does your perception of its genre affect your reading of the work? Use examples from the text.
