Characters do what they do because of their various motivations and desires.Often, their desires conflict with their ethical or moral responsibilities. For example, a personal belief, a love, a thirst for vengeance, a resolve to rectify a wrong, or some other ambition may cause a character to conflict with a moral obligation. Write about a literary work in which a character’s motivations/desire conflict with his/her ethical responsibilities. Remember that you are analyzing the literary text–not commenting on whether or not the behaviors are ethical or “right” in your opinion. Instead, you should focus on the moral dilemma the character experiences and analyze how he/she wrestles with this dilemma beyond what is obvious in the plot. What literary elements draw out this conflict?
Suggested texts:
Stories (choose one):
· “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” Flannery O’Connor
· “The Blue Hotel,” Stephen Crane
· “The Things They Carried” Tim O’Brien
· “Greasy Lake” T.C. Boyle
Drama:
· Macbeth
Write an analysis of a key character in a literary work. Describe two to three key actions of the character, or how the character responds to events. What do the actions reveal about the character? Do the character’s actions fit together, or do they contradict each other? If they contradict, what does that contradiction say about the character’s emotional and mental capacity? Analyze the character’s psychological background. Why does the character act in the way he/she does? How does the author’s characterization in the text reflect this psychological background?
Suggested texts:
Stories (choose one):
· “Where Are you Going, Where Have You Been,” Joyce Carol Oates
· “Interpreter of Maladies,” Jhumpa Lahiri
· “Sonny’s Blues” James Baldwin
· “Sweat” Zora Neale Hurston
Drama:
· Macbeth
· Mistaken Identity
Most often, literary works have both internal conflict (individual v. self) and external conflict (individual v. individual, society, nature, or technology). Additionally, one can often find that a character’s internal conflict is linked to an external one. Choose a text in which both an internal and external conflict are evident to you. How does the external conflict illuminate the internal one? What meaningful parallels or incongruencies do you observe when comparing the two, and what is the significance within the context of the story?
Suggested texts:
Stories (choose one):
· “No Name Woman,” Maxine Hong Kingston
· “Sonny’s Blues,” James Baldwin
· “The Things They Carried,” Tim O’Brien
· “The Cheater’s Guide to Love,” Junot Diaz
Drama (choose one):
· Macbeth
· Mistaken Identity
In some stories, characters come into conflict with the culture in which they live. Often, a character feels alienated in his/her community or society due to race, gender, class or ethnic background. Choose a text that shows this kind of conflict. How is the character alienated from community and how does she/he respond to it? What does that character’s alienation say about the surrounding society’s assumptions, morality and values? In what way(s) do literary elements reflect how that society defines race, gender, class and/or ethnicity? How does this create conflict for the character?
Suggested texts:
Stories (choose one):
· “Sonny’s Blues,” James Baldwin
· “What You Pawn, I Will Redeem,” Sherman Alexie
· “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings” Gabriel Garcia Marquez
· “A Hunger Artist” Franz Kafka

· “Theme for English B,” Langston Hughes

· “To live in the Borderlands means you” Gloria Anzaldúa
· “Child of the Americas” Aurora Levins Morales
Drama:
· Mistaken Identity
· Macbeth
Setting is an important component of any story. Consider the role that setting has in one of the works. How is this particular setting integral to the story? Does the protagonist conflict with the setting or have particular interactions with it? How does the protagonist’s relationship with the setting connect with his/her development as a character?
Suggested texts:

· “Greasy Lake,” T.C. Boyle
· “The Blue Hotel,” Stephen Crane

Tone is a literary element that poets and authors use to effect a certain mood, emotion, setting, and/or message. Choose a story, drama, or poem in which you observe a unique tone. Analyze the tone in detail, illustrating specific qualities of it by offering several textual examples of each quality. Why is this tone important in understanding the conflict and theme of the text? How does it contribute to both?
