1). Explain how one text from our syllabus can teach the reader about the time, place, and culture of its creation. In other words, how does reading the text help you understand the period when it was written?
2). Explain how at least one text from our syllabus, regardless of when or where it was written, can inform the reader’s stance regarding issues of race, gender, and culture from the reader’s own time and place. In other words, how does reading the text help you think about race, gender, and/or culture in your own world?
3). Explain how at least one formal characteristic (symbol, setting, imagery, tone, etc.) of one text from our syllabus helps the author express a specific theme from the text. Explain the theme, and then explain how a formal literary device helps the reader express the theme.
