Assignment Description--Essays 3 & 4

 

In a quotable essay* in College English, critic Dan Vogel writes:

"We know that not all journeys have precisely the same symbolic intentions: some are carefully planned journeys; in others the hero does not even know he is on a journey; sometimes the reader does not know it either....I suggest a lexicon of six terms, each descriptive of a type of movement in a narrative: journey, wandering, quest, pilgrimage, odyssey, and going-forth."

*found in the JSTOR database

Topics (choose 1):
1.      How is a journey theme revealed in one of Reed’s poems and one of the other literary pieces we have read (i.e. Mason, Bambara, Dickinson, Tennyson)?
2.      How does symbolism reveal the theme in one of Reed’s poems and either Tennyson or Dickinson?
3.      How does the title reveal the theme in Reed’s “Jacket Notes” and either Bambara or Mason?
4.      You may propose a comparative topic to me, but it must include one of the Reed poems as a primary source. This topic must be discussed and approved before the first peer review activity.
