Throughout the semester we have discussed the various techniques used to present arguments about topics that really matter to us. We have learned that in order to be persuasive, we need to present facts (logos), appeal to our audience’s emotions (pathos), and gain the trust of our readers (ethos). We have also discussed literary devices/techniques used by authors to craft their work. For your last essay assignment, I would like for you to pick two stories/essays from the book One World and compare and contrast them. The thesis should come up with a compelling argument as to why one author’s story is better than the other based on a literary technique or examine a relationship between the two stories. The comparisons should focus on something like: x A common theme like poverty, mental ill health, childhood, loss, war, depression, isolation, identity, gender roles, sexuality x A literary technique like imagery, Bildungsroman (conflicts related to coming of age) or irony x A character comparison that discusses the similarities and difference between two characters and what this comparison means to us as a society (what can we learn from it?). For the essay, you may choose two stories on your own, or you can pick ONE of the following to compare: x Explore the issues of abandonment in Lauri Kubuitsile’s “The Rich People’s School” and Vanessa Gebbie’s “The Kettle on the Boat” x Female identity and gender roles in Molara Wood’s “Kelemo’s Woman” and Chika Unigwe “Growing My Hair Again”. x Male identity and coming of age in Martin A. Ramos’ “The Way of the Machete” and Shabnam Nadiya’s “Ishwari’s Children”. Please note that you may use the point-by-point or block comparison methods to structure your essay.
