Prompt: Please select one of the two following prompts for your paper. The central question, which your thesis statement should directly respond to, appears in italics.
1. Poetry Analysis: Poetry is a more abstract literary form than the narrative stories we have read. With poetry, the meaning of the poem must be extracted by looking at the poetic devices that the writer uses. For this paper, you will conduct this extraction.
Select one of the poems from our reading list and draw connections between the imagery, figurative language, rhyme scheme, and/or structure of the poem and it’s overall thematic meaning. You’ll need to identify the theme of the poem and show how the poetic devices you choose contribute to this theme. Which poetic devices help establish the theme of the poem and how do they do this?
2. Motif and Theme in The Metamorphosis: As we have learned, the theme of a work of literature is it’s overall message, while motif is a recurring idea or image that is prominent in the story. Often those recurring motifs can be keys that help us establish the overall theme of the story.
In Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis work, money, and dehumanization are three prominent motifs. In your paper, choose one or more of these motifs and explore how they contribute to the overall theme of the story. You’ll need to identify the theme of the story and show how the motif(s) you choose help establish the theme. Which motif(s) are prominent in The Metamorphosis and how do they help establish the theme of the story?
