ENG 356 Full Course – All Weeks Discussion and Assignments

 

ENG 356 Full Course

 

ENG 356 Week 1 Topic 1 DQ 1

 

We read about critical reading in Reading and Writing about Literature. How does one apply critical reading to short fiction and to short nonfiction pieces? Discuss two differences in approach and application of critical reading skills.

 

ENG 356 Week 1 Topic 1 DQ 2

 

Apply the seven elements of fiction as outlined in chapter 5 of Reading and Writing About Literature to Edgar Allen Poe’s review, “The Importance of the Single Effect in a Prose Tale.” Determine whether or not Poe addressed all seven elements or if not, what do you see as lacking in his review?

 

ENG 356 Week 1 Assignment Elements of Fiction

 

After carefully reading, “The Elements of Fiction” in The Story and Its Writer, choose three of the elements of fiction, such as character, setting, plot, point of view, or style, and analyze in a 750-1,000-word essay howthese three elements of fiction contribute to the overall theme (discussed in Appendix 2) in Washington Irving’s story, “Rip Van Winkle.”

Additionally, assert your view of the story’s theme (or central message), as well as how these three elements successfully convey that theme to readers.

ENG 356 Week 2 Topic 2 DQ 1

 

Analyze Poe’s use of suspense in “The Cask of Amontillado” and “Ligeia.” What narrative devices does Poe use, in both stories, to heighten the suspense? What do these stories suggest about the human spirit and condition?

 

ENG 356 Week 2 Topic 2 DQ 2

 

An allegory is a narrative that has an extended dual meaning. One meaning resides in the literal action and plot of the story and another meaning, just as significant, resides in the ideas, values, or messages these actions are intended to convey. Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “Young Goodman Brown” is interesting both on its surface level of action and plot on its deeper, more symbolic level. Notice how the central characters of “Goodman” (a generic Puritan term meaning “gentleman”) and “Faith” represent abstract qualities. How does this story, with its emphasis on the dark undercurrent of evil in this seemingly tranquil New England town, function as a moral allegory?

ENG 356 Week 4 Topic 4 DQ 1

 

In literary criticism, the word “epiphany” refers to a moment in which a character experiences a sudden, life-changing revelation about the true nature of something (often this can be an aspect of his or her character). These moments of insight are usually prompted by something seemingly trivial or commonplace, but they result in a radical change of perception on the part of the character. Consider either James Joyce’s “Araby” or “The Dead” and explain how the central character in either of these stories experiences an epiphanic moment. What does the protagonist learn about himself, about another person, or about life, and how does this experience and gained insight change him?

 

ENG 356 Week 4 Topic 4 DQ 2

ENG 356 Week 4 Assignment Symbolism in Hemingway

 

Details:

Literary Modernism is often associated with a highly symbolic portrayal of human experience, including people’s thoughts and emotions, through the use of concrete, visual images. Analyze the symbolism contained in Hemingway’s “Hills Like White Elephants” in order to uncover the story’s possible thematic meaning(s). For instance, consider carefully images such as the setting between two rail lines; the dry, barren hills; the green fields of grain and trees; the suggestion of “white elephants” (something both precious and useless in some Eastern cultures); the images of alcohol, etc.

How do these visual symbols and images help a reader understand the man, the woman, and the nature of their conflict? Write a response to the question in a 500-750-word essay.

How can the two stories by Flannery O’Connor be seen as examples of “local color” or “regional” Southern fiction?

Explain.

 

ENG 356 Week 6 Topic 6 DQ 2

 

In Raymond Carver’s essay, “On Writing,” (in “The Story and its
Writer”) he states: “too often ‘experimentation’ [in writing] is a
license… to try to brutalize or alienate the reader. Too often such writing gives us no news of the world, or else describes a desert landscape and that’s all ― a few dunes and lizards here and there, but no people; a place uninhabited by anything recognizably human, a place of interest only to a few scientific specialists.” What extent does this critique of some forms of Postmodern fiction, those in which the authors are apparently more concerned with linguistic innovation than with conveying anything seemingly real or significant to a reader, apply to the fiction assigned in the Topic 6 Readings? Choose two of the assigned readings and explain why this critique does or does
not apply to these works.
