LTWR 346 – Paper #3: Environmental Borderlands
In both Power and Annihilation, the arbitrary Western distinction between ‘humanity’ and ‘nature’ is carefully critiqued. In this paper, I would like you to analyze the arguments being presented: what does it mean when these two categories blur and bleed into one another? In order to focus your paper on a particular aspect of this very large topic, I would like you to choose one of the following subtopics:
Personal Identity (Maybe the ‘individual’ is an idealistic concept…)
OR
Free Will (Maybe we don’t have complete control over our actions…)
For example, suppose I choose free will. In my paper, I might look at the ways in which free will is called into question in both novels. Does Ama have control of her actions? What about the Biologist? I will also think about how this critique of free will breaks down the barrier between our categories of human and nature. Why do we create this “human / nature” opposition in the first place? How do we define the two against one another? What problems arise from this distinction? How does the loss of free will deconstruct the binary? What changes when we can no longer make the distinction between human and nature? Is this a positive or negative change or something in-between? And other questions along these lines!
I have only a few parameters that I would like you to follow:
Engage in synthesis. In other words, produce a paper that reveals the overarching argument across Power and Annihilation, but also demonstrate the subtle differences and disagreements between the two authors.
Feel free to use and cite ideas from as many of our essayists as you would like (Emerson, Thoreau, Austin, Muir, Haraway, Tsing, Hogan, Kimmerer), but please make sure that the primary focus of the paper is a close analysis of the two novels.
This paper should be written in a 12-pt font, double-spaced, with 1” margins on all sides. It should be cited in MLA format. It should contain relevant quotations (and analysis of said quotations) from both novels. Your paper should have a unique title.
This paper should be at least 1500 words in length, but it can be longer.

The question asked is deceptively vague. They simply give you a quotation and say ‘discuss’. I suppose this gives you a modicum offree reign to write what you’d like! You simply need to create a defendable argument around the quote.
Quotations are needed, unfortunately, and page numbers are required. The edition used is the June 20, 2017 reissue of Primo Levi’s”The Drowned and the Saved” (the ISBN-13 of it being 978-1501167638)

. Both of these authors lived in a time when women did not have a strong voice. Additionally, slaves rarely received an education, let alone had the opportunity to speak by composing and publishing poetry. How do these authors shed light on the perspectives of women and slaves (in the case of Wheatley) in their literary periods? Include direct quotes from Wheatley’s poetry and Bradstreet’s poetry for analysis and support.

Irony is on
full display in this drama of jealousy and revenge. Among the topics that are treated with
Shakespeare’s dramatic irony is honesty (a word that appears many times
throughout the play). Another example is
when Othello, in Act III, tells Desdemona: “I will deny thee nothing.” He
repeats this tragically ironic line, and in hindsight (as is often the case
with irony) this line takes on other meaning.
*** Discuss Shakespeare’s
use of dramatic irony by pointing out examples and by
explaining why a playwright might use this
method. A definition of irony
and dramatic irony would be helpful. Be sure to use Shakespeare’s words
to support and enhance your essay.

Argue whether comedic devices work to develop the plot in The Taming of the Shrew.
Secondary sources to use: As You Like It and Hamlet
Intro Paragraph:
Comedic devices are ever-present in Shakespeare’s works, and are notably helpful when it comes to the development of the plotlines, especially in his play The Taming of the Shrew. Shakespeare’s use of comedic devices help not only to progress the story, but to give it action through exposition and character development.

American writer Ralph Waldo Emerson once said that conformity = suicide. In other words, to conform is to kill your individuality, your authentic self. Apply Emerson’s idea to Esther’s world of 1950’s America. Do you think her depression may be a result of her rejection of her society’s values? Does society put too much pressure on its citizens to live a certain way and as a result cause people to perhaps to live a lie? Live a fake life? There are many poignant scenes from the book that exhibit Esther acting “mad” as a result of her rejection of her world. What are a few that come to mind? What about your world? In what ways does your world cause depression or madness? Please answer all questions. Be detailed and honest. 500 words or more.
