What role do the theoretical articles we have read (Liang, Hu, Chen, and Lu) assign to literature in general and/or fiction? Do the examples we have read live up to that standard? If so, how? If not, in what ways and to what extent do they differ from the theoretical models?

Write a mid-length (5-8 pages, double-spaced) paper on the topic. The various questions included in each topic are meant as spurs to stimulate your thinking and provide possible directions in which to take your paper; do not feel like you have to “answer” or “cover” all or even any of them. Regardless of which topic you choose, you should refer to specific passages from the readings we have prepared for class (including the optional readings, should you desire) to support your position. In your analysis, be as precise and focused as possible, whether it be in terms of plot, characters, literary techniques, tones, styles etc. Precision of analysis should help add depth and insight to your interpretation. The best papers will be able to link the specifics of your analysis to overarching themes displayed in the texts themselves.
