The works we read this week all tackled the topic of violence or loss in some way. These are themes that are, of course, common throughout all literature, but is it different when writing in the traditions of women’s literature? How do these works (at least two of them) discuss violence? Is it presented differently than other works you have encountered (in our out of this class) that discuss violence?
READINGS WEEK 14:
Maxine Hong Kingston, “No Name Woman“
Bharati Mukherjee, “The Management of Grief”
Gloria Anzaldua, “Tilli, Tlapalli /The Path of the Red and Black Ink“
In at least two short paragraphs, be sure to answer the questions in complete, correct, detailed, and well-supported sentences.
Is there a message? Are the messages indicative of any cultural or societal issues? Or, are they just part of the story? Does the violence or grief symbolize anything else?
Please respond to 2 students with 5-7 sentence if you agree, disagree or try to either challenge or expand on what it is that they are trying to say to their post and explain why.
PLEASE NOTE: I WILL PROVIDE THE STUDENTS DISSCUSSIONS ONCE THEY POST
