What is the topic? Choose any poem and/or film that we have discussed thus far in the class. Explain one-two of the major themes (images, figures of speech, symbol, allegory, irony, and sounds), and make a connection to your own life.

For instance, “Dead Poets Society” dealt with irony via parental peer pressure and/or finding one’s voice. We have all been there. How have you coped in similar situations?

Therefore, I’d like your essay to be a nice, blended piece of research and creativity. Whenever you can make a connection to great fiction, its purpose is being fulfilled.

Please make sure your essay is one-two pages (250-500 words) and double-spaced.

I want one-two credible sources. If you use Wikipedia, I will cry and lower your grade.
