Midterm Topic Choices

Choose ONE of the following topics and write a 750-word essay.

Topic 1: Choose one of the films below and one of the readings from your textbook. The essay should briefly summarize the chosen film and reading to provide context; however, your essay should not be a simple plot summary of the film and the reading. Instead, your essay should analyze the author’s and film’s intent and identify universal themes, conflicts, and climaxes. Of the film and the reading you’ve chosen, which one better accomplishes its purpose? How? Make sure to include evidence from both the film and the reading to support your ideas. Cite all quotes using APA format.

The table below identifies the three films you may choose from, along with some suggestions for readings you might choose to go with them.

Using AT LEAST one verse and the refrain, discuss the lyrics in terms of poetry. Be SURE to discuss the following: content (story), including poetic components such as alliteration, simile, metaphor, and personification. In addition, identify the rhyme scheme, and include imagery (symbolic or literal). Be sure to use examples from the song. Be sure to cite the song according to APA and cite all quotes using APA format.

Topic 3: View The Crucible (available for rent on Amazon.com)or you may read the play (Go to “Start Here” and the “Course Resources” to see the Webliography page for links where you may be able to access the play)–and discuss the theme of persecution.

1. How the theme of persecution is represented in the film (or play) itself, and

2. How the ideas of this film apply to contemporary society.

You may wish to include a discussion of McCarthyism and how Miller reflects McCarthyism in The Crucible.
