In your final essay I would like you to explore ONE central topic in either Soza

In your final essay I would like you to explore ONE central topic in either Sozaboy or So Long a Letter, and include TWO secondary academic sources of your choice.
Possible topics include:
– Issues of identity and language in Sozaboy
– Sozaboy as a critique of war and violence
– Tradition and modernity in So Long a Letter
– Feminism and Islam in So Long a Letter
As with the previous essay, I recommend the following format:
– Introduction of the topic, of the book, and of the two secondary sources
– Brief overview of both secondary sources in one or two paragraph
– Connection between the essays and chosen passages of the book you are writing about. This is where your analysis comes in, i.e. how are you applying the concepts of the essays to specific passages of the book. The more passages you have, the more you have to write about. Each paragraph should include at least one quote
– Conclusion on what you have discovered along the way. I don’t want a repetition of what you did, but a synthesis of the essay’s purpose and what the reader is supposed to gain from it
– Works Cited page, in MLA format
