Select a story from this book (it doesn’t need to have been assigned by me)
and analyze its themes through one or more literary lenses. Think of a debatable theory related to that lens (ex:
“The Story of an Hour” + Feminism; Theory: “Mrs Mallard’s death was a symbolic victory over her society’s
sexist expectations”) and argue either for or against that theory. While the last paper focused on comparing one
theme in two stories, this paper will focus on arguing persuasively that your theory has validity.
