This assignment is designed to allow you to explore a reading from the course in more depth or research and learn about a new piece (you need to seek my approval) of literature from the modern or postmodern period. We will be reading a variety of pieces from a variety of authors. Throughout the term, we will be asking essentially the same question: “How does his modern piece of literature help us understand identity?” You should choose one piece of literature from this term or chose a new piece and explore that question with the help of at least three secondary sources.
The paper should be a full 3-4 double-spaced pages (no less than 1000 words) with proper in-text citations and a Works Cited page formatted according to current MLA guidelines. Be sure to carefully credit your sources, although you want to quote sparingly and paraphrase when possible.
