  • 2. CHAIR POET? When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses. John F. Kennedy

MODERNISM/POSTMODERNISM In a thesis driven essay, discuss the themes, style, form, experiments, perspectives, or changes that define the trajectory of modernism and postmodernism by engaging three or four of the texts we have read during the quarter. Make sure to use a range of works that span the 90+ years we have covered. Ground your argument in textual examples and adequate explanation and analysis.
  • 8. CRITICAL THEORY In a thesis driven essay, discuss three or four texts from multiple decades through the lens of one critical theory (Feminist, Marxist, African American [minority], or Queer). Ground your argument in textual examples and adequate explanation and analysis.
  • 9. POETRY Do a close reading of one or two poems. Consider form, meter, rhyme, symbols, metaphors, images, and content. In a thesis driven essay, show how or why the poem is significant. What does it say about the condition of society at the time it was written? Ground your argument in textual examples and adequate explanation and analysis. Bring a copy of the poem(s) you plan to use.
  • 10. NAMES AND NAMING Discuss names, naming, and the lack of names in three or four texts that span the era of modernism and postmodernism. How does naming reflect the social condition? How is it important to our understanding of both the novel and the historical context relevant to the texts you have chosen? Ground your argument in textual examples and adequate explanation and analysis.
  • 11. THE AMERICAN DREAM While the messages of the Dream has motivated and enabled many Americans, it has also veiled the many systemic limitations and restrictions inherent in “The Dream.” In a thesis driven essay, using three or four texts that represent the 90 years that we covered in the class, explain how the American Dream has both inspired and disillusioned 20th/21st Century Americans. Consider immigrants and the poor, the spiritual and ethical corruption of those trying to achieve The Dream, the Beats, materialism, and the current status of The Dream.
