Essay 2-Entering a Scholarly Conversation-“Search and Journey” unit
For paper one, you developed an original claim in response to at least one of the stories from our “Relationships” unit. For paper two, we are reading a series of longer short stories dealing with the complex theme of “Search and Journey.” Your goal with this essay is to identify a specific opportunity for conversation in this set of stories and develop an original and interesting claim (likely in response to a question emerging from your sense of the opportunity for conversation). Remember that an opportunity for conversation can be a gap, tension, contradiction, ambiguity, or difficulty in the texts or the subject of the text. While the opportunity for conversation in your first paper was necessarily located within only one story, you should tackle a slightly broader issue for this essay; your evidence is limited to the stories in the “Search and Journey” unit but feel free to make connections and or comparisons to other works of literature that we read in the first unit.
Tip: A strong claim is an answer to a complex question. You might find it useful to begin this assignment by formulating a question and drafting your essay by pursuing the question through close analysis of passages from the assigned texts. You can then revise your draft so it is organized to support your claim.
Your paper should be at least 3.5 full pages (or 1000 words). Your rough and final drafts should be formatted according to MLA guidelines, which you can find at https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/
