Discussion: Women’s roles or women’s bodies
Topic: Select a theme related to women’s roles or women’s bodies that appears in a variety of poems, stories, and non-fiction (for instance, the power/danger of women’s sexuality, the confinement of marriage, the challenges facing the woman artist/intellectual). Note: since you are completing another project on the essays of Wollstonecraft, Woolf, Rich, and Walker, do not include their work in this paper. (Exception: you may include Rich’s poetry.)
Examine how the theme you have selected is presented in six to eight works on our syllabus. At least two of the texts must have been written before 1950. Also, be sure to include at least two of the major forms (poetry, fiction, non-fiction, drama).
What is similar and what is distinctive about each work’s presentation of your theme? (Remember to maintain focus on examining your theme: No need to summarize a work already familiar to your audience.) As pertinent, refer to the works’ historical context and literary elements. In your conclusion, explain which work(s) are most compelling to you and why.
Your Synthesis Paper should include short quotes from the primary texts for support. You may, if you wish, reinforce your evaluation with secondary criticism. Just be sure to appropriately acknowledge these critics (and be sure they are credible). If you include historical research beyond the general information included in our text, be sure to cite that as well.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument
