Literature and Controversy Lolita by Ann Feeney

Literature and Controversy Lolita by Ann Feeney, “Since its first struggle for publication, Lolita has generally become more…tolerated, or perhaps understood.

Most of the bans placed upon it have been either lifted or rendered impotent” (71).* Why do you think this is the case? What does the fact that the novel is less controversial now tell us about the book and/or literary controversies more generally? For the world can get rid of the HIV/AIDS pandemic by 2030, there is need for more to be done especially in the case of countries in Africa.

Renaissance to Revolution Paper on Vermeers Hat

Renaissance to Revolution Paper on Vermeers Hat Write an essay discussing the use of primary sources in Timothy Brook’s Vermeer’s Hat.

Renaissance to Revolution Paper on Vermeers Hat
Renaissance to Revolution Paper on Vermeers Hat

Choosing at least three different primary sources (including paintings, texts, archaeological remains) discuss the nature of those sources, how the author employs them, and what you think these primary sources can reveal to us about the early modern period. Be sure to discuss the sources in light of what you see as the author’s main theme or argument in the book. I recommend reading at least chapters 1, 4, 5, 7 and 8.

Renaissance to Revolution Paper on Vermeers Hat

This essay should be at least three pages long, typed and double-spaced (roughly 750 words or more up to 1000 words or four pages). Please include a title for your essay.

In discussing the primary sources you might ask the following types of questions:

What is the nature of the source? Is it a text, material object, and of what type?

Who made or wrote the source? What kind of person wrote or made it (status, level of wealth, gender, position, etc.)?

What were their intentions?

Is the source prescriptive or descriptive? Does it suggest how something should be a certain way or does it describe how things are (On Good Manners is prescriptive because it suggests how people should behave, whereas a census record is descriptive because it describes an existing population)?

Renaissance to Revolution Paper on Vermeers Hat

What are the limitations of the sources you have discussed? Does the author use them in an imaginative or unusual way? Does the author misinterpret the source or miss something you think is critical.

My recommendation is to pick different types of sources and write about each. You can choose a painting, an archaeological site (shipwreck), and a text the author uses (such as one of the texts about smoking). This is just a suggestion.

Make some overall point about what we know and don’t know about this period.

You can read the book strategically. Look at the chapter headings, think about what the book is trying to do. Read some parts more thoroughly than others when there is a source you would like to discuss.

Just rely on your own words and thoughts! Do not use any outside sources. The use of outside sources will result in a three point deduction (each time). Please do not use any outside sources.

This essay will be going on Turnitin so please do not plagiarize anything.

American Literature of Literary Analysis

American Literature of Literary Analysis At a Glance: The goal of this essay is to simply look deeply into a text, or texts, making your own claims about its possible meanings, and supporting those claims with textual evidence.

American Literature of Literary Analysis
American Literature of Literary Analysis

To that end, I am less concerned with what claim you are attempting to make than I am with your ability to support your claims.

The American Literature of Literary Analysis Assignment

For this assignment, choose any text (or texts) from our reading and examine a possible interpretation of the subtext. In other words, look at the text and explain what the author may be trying to communicate to the reader: theme, character, social criticism, etc. You may build and expand on ideas we discussed in class or come up with an idea all your own. Your essay should include a strong, affirmative thesis statement that explains the argument that will drive your essay. A short, 1-2 paragraph summaries of the relevant parts of the story, stories, poem(s), speech (es) and several body paragraphs that support you claim. Each paragraph should be supported by textual evidence.

You may consider focusing on a single work, and explore the subtext of that work, or, you may consider a theme or idea shared by several works and shows how they all approach that specific idea. In either case, focus your attention on one idea and do a deep dive, rather than trying to superficially discuss several ideas.

A good place to start is to think about the works that we have read and identify which story/poem/speech, characters, and/or story event resonated with you. This paper basically can be an exploration into why that character or event was so interesting.

The American Literature of Literary Analysis Particulars

The essay should be between four (4) and six (6) pages in length.

You do not need to use any outside resources, but you may.

*NOTE* You may not use Wikipedia, SparkNotes, Shmoop, or any other such websites. This will be considered cheating.

You must include the work cited page that includes all of the primary texts, and any secondary sources used.

Effects of Undocumented Parents on US Born Children Literature review

Research has shown that in almost every third of the immigrant children, one of them have an undocumented parent. Most of the parents are immigrant citizens who enter the country either legally or illegally.

Effects of Undocumented Parents on US Born Children
Effects of Undocumented Parents on US Born Children

The one that enters legally overstay past the expiration period rendering them illegal immigrants. At the time of immigration, most of the immigrants are not accompanied by children because of the strict measures that are put in place. After entering the United States, most of the immigrantís bear children who in turn have undocumented parents. Growing up as a child with undocumented parents comes with a number of both physical and mental effects. There are socioeconomic drawbacks that can be linked with the undocumented parents. When comparing the children with undocumented parents with the ones with documented parents, there is a disparity that is observed. Those with illegal parents receive low levels of education. Equally some of the other effects include employment and income.

Effects of Undocumented Parents on US Born Children

Undocumented parenthood is linked with low levels of cognitive growth and academic progression. This runs from the early stages of childhood to the late stages of adulthood. This situation can be evidenced at the adolescent stage. The young children of two to three years of age had fewer standards of cognitive ability. There is a retarded positive feeling in the Middle Ages in cases where the children have undocumented parents. The children had low educational anticipations, and they encounter several barriers towards the attainment of their academic goals. This as well impacted on their ability to attend college fully as compared to their colleagues. The children and adolescents with undocumented parents seemed to have high levels of anxiety, and they depicted some form of stress and depression. Equally, another research established that having undocumented parents were characterized by few years spent in the academic spectrum. However, this largely relied upon the socioeconomic position of the families.

Effects of Undocumented Parents on US Born Children

Worries that arise in children in the process of anticipating for the arrest of their parents make them experience depression, anxiety, and stress. Qualitative studies have shown that the worries of parent abduction impact on child development either directly or indirectly. The undocumented families live in fear of the authorities because they anticipate any sudden arrest. Children born from the undocumented parents suffered stigmatization considering what others perceived of them. They are not at ease being regarded as immigrants. As a result, they find themselves avoiding coming into contact with their fellows in school leading to school dropouts and low quality of education. In times of deportation of the illegal immigrants, the children encounter several menaces. They become separated from their parents, and as a result, their growth is impaired. Undocumented parents cannot enjoy all the benefits that are provided by the government to the adults. The services include healthcare and perinatal care, housing, emergency support, and monetary assistance. The undocumented parents as well cannot expand their medical cover, and thus they cannot cover their children. Some of the services that are provided by the federal government to the US children cannot reach those with the undocumented parents. The services include the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Effects of Undocumented Parents on US Born Children

According to this article by Jeffery S. Passel, DíVera Cohn and John Gramlich, about 250,000 babies were born to unauthorize immigrant parents in the United States in 2016, the latest year for which information is available, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of government data. This represents a 36% decrease from a peak of about 390,000 in 2007. The analysis follows President Donald Trump’s announcement that his administration may seek to end birthright citizenship. î This article is important because it shows.

How does the story thematically reflect Ngugi’s essay? Postcolonialism, the historical period or state of affairs representing the aftermath of Western colonialism; the term can also be used to describe the concurrent project to reclaim and rethink the history and agency of people subordinated under various forms of imperialism. Postcolonialism signals a possible future of overcoming colonialism, yet new forms of domination or subordination can come in the wake of such changes, including new forms of global empire.

The Song of Roland a Tradition of Oral Tales

The Song of Roland a Tradition of Oral Tales that was finally written down about the year 1100 and the Lancelot story written down by ChrÈtien de Troyes in roughly 1170 recount different facets of the chivalric or feudal code, of the code of behavior that emerged around the year 1100 in Western Europe and that portrayed an ideal set of values for noblemen warriors.

The Song of Roland a Tradition of Oral Tales
The Song of Roland a Tradition of Oral Tales

Roland portrays a masculine world of brave warriors who commit their lives to protect their superiors, while the Lancelot story portrays a feminized world where men submit themselves fully to the women they love.

The Song of Roland a Tradition of Oral Tales

Write a paper of a minimum of 200 words describing the masculine or feminine characteristics of the people and the plot in each story. You might think of Roland being written for a masculine audience, and Lancelot being written for a female audience. If that is true, then how do these stories appeal to both of those audiences? Are there areas where the values of each story conflict with the values of the other?

The Song of Roland a Tradition of Oral Tales

Be sure to double-space your work and put your name on the top. Underline the title Song of Roland. There is no specific title for the Lancelot story, so you don’t need an underline or quotation marks for Lancelot
