The length should be between six pages. It should be double spaced with one inch margins all around. You may choose any one or two of works (memoir, fiction or poetry) we’ve read so far this semester. Review the different stories that have been assigned and select one of the options below and write a paper.

Option one: Some of the works we’ve read so far this semester have had to do with issues related to home, family, and/or identity. Choose any two works that we’ve read and discuss what they suggest about the nature of home and family. To make your task more manageable, you might look specifically at the endings of two works and compare/contrast the implications of each. What do the endings have in common? Are they neatly tied up or left unresolved? Another approach you might take is to consider two characters (from two different stories) with similar roles in the family. How are the experiences of the character similar?

Option two: Choose one or two stories and focus on how the characters experience alienation. You might focus on how that alienation shapes the character(s) and your understanding of him/her/them.

Option three: This one is similar to option two. Consider the characters in the stories we’ve read so far and how they struggle with intimacy. You might discuss ways in which intimacy (or the lack of it) influenced the actions of the characters.

Option four: Choose two stories and consider the importance of setting. Compare and/or contrast the importance of setting in your understanding of the stories.

Option five: Compare/contrast character and tension. Choose any two stories that we’ve read (including the stories for next week) and consider how the authors illuminate character through tension. What is the tension that forces the characters to reveal themselves? But more importantly, what meaning comes from the interconnectedness of the character and the tension they experiences?
