History. How did at least three of the works we read represent and/or respond to a historical event? Was this representation biased in any way? Did the work utilize this representation to make a larger point about a specific issue?
Respond in 3-4 pages, typed, double spaced, MLA format, Times New Roman 12 point font. You are not required to do any outside research but of course you can use notes, your texts, course materials, etc. You may use any of the texts we’ve read this semester that fit the question. You must cite everything correctly and have a works cited page. For each question be sure to consider why not just how the theme is used. It isn’t enough to explain how we see a given theme is shown, you also want to analyze why it is used. Try to avoid plot summary and provide textual analysis instead.
