READ EVERYTHING CAREFULLY:
Review the chapter on sexuality in Gary Okihiro’s Common Ground and select 4 distinct sentences from different places in the chapter that you think speak to or encapsulate compelling parts of his argument. Use each of these sentences as a section heading in a 4-page essay (double-spaced, 1-inch margins, 12pt font, with page numbers). For each of the sections, use the corresponding section heading as a starting point for navigating the identity/identities of a different character in Charles Chesnutt’s The Marrow of Tradition. Use multiple, specific examples and, when relevant, brief quotes from the text. (Every quote you include should be followed by an in-depth analysis of that quote.) Don’t forget to address the ways that other attributes of each character–for example, race, gender, geography, class, lineage, language—complicate the ways that sexuality is figured in the book.Remember to include a title, and to cite every single primary and secondary source in a separate “Works Cited” section.
BOOK SOURCES: For Gary okihiro’s common ground book i am going to upload pictures of the chapter in the book so you can pick 4 distinct sentences and use each sentence as a section heading and write 1 page for each heading
Suggestions: For the Charles chestnutt”s the marrow of tradition book i would say use spark notes to find good quotes that the assignment is asking for.
