THERE ARE 4 LITERATURE QUESTIONS TO ANSWER.

 

QUESTION 1.

Reflect: Macbeth is often considered one of literature’s greatest tragedies, not only because of Macbeth’s tragic fall from grace, but because of how the play relates to human nature and the conflicts inherent in human nature. Think of what kinds of conflicts you saw in Macbeth. Consider what literary techniques helped convey the conflict.

 Write: Your initial post must be 200 words in length. In your initial post, please do the following:

Identify a conflict that you see present in Macbeth (please refer to the list of conflicts).

Respond to one of the following and provide specific textual examples:

Describe a key conflict in the play and how it corresponds to a character’s development.

Describe two key literary techniques and elements of drama that aid in developing the conflict.

Explain how the conflict identified in the play relates to human nature and the human condition.

QUESTION 2.

Reflect: In the “Tragedy” discussion this week, you explored the function of conflict in a tragedy and how the conflict is enhanced by certain literary elements and techniques. In this discussion activity, you will focus on comedy. Reflect on Mistaken Identity: A Ten Minute Play. This is a modern comedy that centers on the quest for love and understanding. Consider whether/how the function of the conflict in this play and the way the literary elements and techniques enhance the conflict is different from what we studied in Macbeth.

 Write: The initial post must be at least 200 words in length. In your initial post:

Identify a conflict that you see present in Mistaken Identity: A Ten Minute Play (please refer to the list of conflicts)

Respond to one of the following, providing examples or quotations from the play to illustrate your ideas:

Describe a key conflict in the play and how it corresponds to a character’s development.

Describe two key literary techniques and elements and techniques of drama that aid in developing the conflict.

Explain how and why the conflict in this comedy is different from and/or similar to the conflict explored in tragedy.

QUESTION 3.

Reflect: In the Critical Literary Theories handout, four different kinds of critical approaches are presented. Consider which of the four theories you find most interesting as a means for understanding literature.

 Write: Your initial post should be at least 200 words in length. The minimum word count does not include references. Choose two of those critical approaches and address the points below.

Describe each critical approach in detail.

Compare and/or contrast the two critical approaches. How are they different and similar?

Determine which critical approach you find most useful for examining the conflicts and meaning in literature.

Explain why you chose this particular approach as the most useful. Why does it appeal to you?

QUESTION 4.

Reflect: In this discussion, you will reflect on what you learned in the course by practicing the skill of asking an open ended academic question. This exercise will allow you to engage in a discussion you create with your peers. It also helps you to ask your own questions about literature, which can serve as a gateway to initiating critical analysis. Think of an open-ended question about literature that you would like to ask in order to challenge your classmates to reflect more deeply. Also, reflect on your initial response to the Clugston quote in Week 1 Discussion 1.  How have your feelings about literature changed or remained the same?             

Write: Your initial post should be at least 200 words in length. The minimum word count does not include references.

Construct an open-ended question (see How to Ask an Open-Ended Question handout) to ask your peers about the literature you read in the class. Avoid asking closed-end questions that require a “yes” or “no” answer. The question should not be overly broad or too general, but focus on specific literary conflicts, techniques, or themes.

Share what you learned by reading your peers’ posts throughout the class.

 

Discuss your initial response to the Clugston (2014) quote from Week One. Based on what you learned about literature, what has changed? How will these changes impact your perspective on literature?
