Essay 2 Peer Evaluation: Monday, October 7 and Wednesday, October 9 Essay Two and Essay Two Outline are due by 11:55 pm on Monday, October 14 via Eagle Online.
Assignment: You will write an analysis on one of the works we have read and evaluated online. Your essay must be at least 4 complete pages in length-excluding the works cited page; the works cited page will be, at least, page 5. In addition, the essay will comprise of 7 paragraphs: an introduction; 5 body paragraphs; and a solid conclusion. Remember, an analytical paper breaks down an issue or an idea into its component parts, evaluates the issue or idea, and presents this breakdown and evaluation to the audience. Critical papers analyze or explain some important point about a piece of literature.
You will choose one of the following topics:
1. You will write an argumentative essay where you argue that Beneatha is a divisive force in the family in Lorraine Hansberry’s play “A Raisin in the Sun.” The play examines the role of women with the introduction of three generations of women. Lena is the matriarch of the family and, as such, her self-worth is aligned to her compliance of traditional feminine behavior. Additionally, Ruth is a woman in her thirties who is married to Walter Lee; and though she is vocal about her feelings of frustration, she ultimately abides by society’s expectations of women with her desire to please her husband, regardless of how she feels. Finally, Beneatha is a 20 year-old young woman who challenges the traditional behavioral expectations of women; she is enrolled in college and aspires to attend medical school and become a doctor. Her perception that a woman’s purpose is much more than merely that of wife or mother challenges Walter Lee’s power and authority.
2. Write an argumentative essay where you contemplate and evaluate whether justice is fulfilled in Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll House.” The play “A Doll House” examines the traditional roles of men and women in the 19th century as it evaluates the idea of justice and its social application. Nora exemplifies the traditional feminine standard of the time and as such is left powerless. She is confined by the patriarchal expectations that denote a woman’s worth as indicative of her purpose: that of wife and mother. Remember, at this time, feminine conduct is assessed through a masculine perspective. At the end of the play, she decides to leave her husband and children in an attempt to attain and exert her individuality and hence social identity.
