[SOLVED] Royal Tyler’s The Contrast

Your second full-length essay (1,000 words minimum, typed, double-spaced, WORD Count included at end, submitted through Blackboard) will be over the following topic:   Assume you are the Producer/Designer for a planned revival of Royall Tyler’s The Contrast, as either stage play or film. How would go about adapting the piece for a 21st century audience? Social types and manners have changed since 1787, but some are still with us in evolved ways. What sort of characters from the contemporary gallery of types and stereotypes would you have play the different roles? What actors would you cast? How would you costume and design the piece?   Think about the issues the play of dealing with and how these have come down to us: imitation vs. originality/authenticity; the serious/gravitas vs. the frivolous/trivial; natural vs. artificial; hierarchies of rank vs. the ideal of a “level” playing field, an equal opportunity, etc.   Remember, while Tyler and other writers of the Early Republic were concerned with sharpening and defining the contrast between the United States and Great Britain, they were also exploring divisions, stresses, factions, within the young country. And while we no longer measure ourselves against Great Britain, those factions/divisions within the United States have grown exponentially over the last 232 years. So, you have a much more diversified cultural landscape from which to draw.

You will also learn to follow standard usage in English grammar and sentence structure; proceed independently through the various stages of research and integrate sources accurately and effectively; identify the theme and structure of each literary selection as well as the significant characteristics or elements of each genre studied; and evaluate the literary merit of a work (Syllabus MLOs: A, B, C, D, E, F, G and Module/Week 8 LOs: 1, 2).   In Module/Week 7, you will write a 1,500-word (approximately 5 pages) paper that addresses 1 of the plays from the Drama Unit.

[SOLVED] Theme of Economic Opportunity and Growth

This paper needs to focus on the theme of economic opportunity and growth due to the rapid urbanization of larger US Cities such as NYC and Chicago. DO NOT use any outside information or sources. You are only to use the books as sources. YOU MUST use at least 3 quotes from “Sister Carrie” and 2 quotes from Chapter 9 of “The Jungle” (Please not that you are only supposed to use Chapter 9 from “The Jungle” and no other chapters) When quoting Sister Carrie, please state what Chapter the quote is from. The 3 main characters from Sister Carrie I would like for you to discuss is Carrie, Drouet, and Hurstwood. When it comes to Carrie, I would like for you to write about how she is from a smaller town and how she moved to Chicago and then NYC and became an actress. When discussing Chapter 9 from “The Jungle” you can talk about anything you seem fit that relates to the theme but you must make this connection to the theme as well as draw similarities to Sister Carrie. I will attach my professors instructions to make this a little more clear. Also, Chapter 9 of The Jungle can easily be found online.

[SOLVED] Figurative Language

Discuss how the setting, symbols, and figurative language used in Volar and A Wall of Fire Rising contributed to how the characters were shaped by their environment and/or scenes from the stories. Please do not summarize the stories. Provide a literary analysis of the settings, symbols, and figurative language used in both stories. Writing well-developed paragraphs relevant to the prompt(s) (minimum 300 words). Be sure that your thesis is explicit and supported with one to two quotations from the literature.

That way, anyone in the class (including me!) can easily find the quotation in the literature if necessary. If you’re not sure what to place inside the parentheses, there is instruction in the textbook in Chapter 34- Quotation, Citation, and Documentation.  When you include in-text citations, there must be a Works Cited listing at the bottom of your post.

[SOLVED] Norton Anthology of Literature

This assignment will be submitted to Turnitin®. Instructions Read the following selections from Norton Anthology of Literature Volume A:  – Thomas Paine, pp. 639-647 (8th ed.); 681-689 (9th ed.) – Thomas Jefferson, pp. 659-677 (8th ed.); 702-720 (9th ed.) – Olaudah Equiano, pp. 687-699 (8th ed.); 731-744 (9th ed.) – Judith Sargent Murray, pp. 737-743 (8th ed.); 770-776 (9th ed.) – Philip Freneau, pp. 756-762 (8th ed.); 780-787 (9th ed.) – Phillis Wheatley, pp. 763-771 (8th ed.); 787-795 (9th ed.) Answer five of the six following questions, using quotes from the readings for support. 1. In the headnote to Thomas Paine’s section of readings, it’s noted that his “attempt to define his beliefs was viewed as an attack on Christianity and, by extension, on conventional society” (Baym 640).  Using any of the selections in Paine’s section, defend or refute this belief.  2. How is Thomas Jefferson’s “Declaration of Independence” similar in form to Jonathan Edwards’ “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God?”  Compare the language used in each, as well as the impact both works are meant to have on their readers.  3. Why might Olaudah Equiano’s narrative be an important addition to a collection of early American works, such as the one used in this course?  What makes it interesting as “American” literature, considering the scholarly debate surrounding his origin of birth (Africa or South Carolina)? 4. Why are Murray’s letters given such eloquence?  In reading these fictional, intimate letters now, what pleasures or frustrations might readers have?  Do the letters allow us, the audience, to truly experience how people during her time lived, or do we only see them as we wish they lived?  Does Murray seem to be capturing absolute realism, or do you think she has something else in mind?  5. What seems to be limiting Philip Freneau’s writing?  Does his chosen form (poetry) have anything to do with this reason?  For many people, he’s not as well known an author as his contemporaries (Franklin, Paine, and Jefferson, for example), but why might that be?  How did he address political and social conditions of his time, and why should modern-day readers care more about his work? 6. Like Anne Bradstreet, Phillis Wheatley also used her poetry to address public subjects.  How does her work compare to Bradstreet’s in voice and topic?  What do you think explains the absence of a personal voice in Wheatley’s writing, and does this affect its overall power?
