The course project is the culminating assignment for this course. You will compare two stories from the course: one of the stories from this week and one from an early week in the term.
Select one of the stories read this week and compare it to another story from an early week in the term. Depending on which stories you select, the ways in which you make your comparison may differ. However, each essay should apply at least three of the topics studied this semester and how the two stories you selected bear resemblance in their use of those elements.
For example, you may find that two stories have great parallels when it comes to their use of setting, illness, and romance. Explore the ways in which the authors exploited these literary elements to create an effective short story.
The stories need not line up in all three categories. For example, if you were to pick “A&P” and “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” (which you can’t since they are both from previous weeks), you may focus on how those stories are parallel tales of youth, but how gender altered the way in which they were executed.
Use a secondary source beyond Foster’s text to back up the parallels you see between the two stories. Examples of such sources could be interviews with authors about their sources of inspiration, news articles that cover an issue portrayed by both stories, etc.
The library is a great resource to help you succeed in gathering scholarly resource. Consider looking at works like articles about the stories authors, remarks the authors may have made about their own work, literary journals, etc.
