What cultural themes in minority american literature teach us about

Using the Literature of two Asian American writers: Li-Young Lee and Cathy Song

 

Write a formal, 5-paragraph essay in APA format, including a cover page, in response to this question:  

 

Reoccurring themes of being torn between two cultures, writing against stereotypes, and racial tensions have surfaced for authors throughout this course. What do these stories about the struggles of coming to America to find a place amidst two cultures teach us about diversity?

 

Remember that a theme in a piece of fiction is its view about life and how people behave. We might ask ourselves: what do the characters, action, plot, setting and story problems in this piece show us?

 

Base your answer on your own observations and support your assertions quoting from your assigned readings.

 

Read the assigned readings from the Asian American Literature sections.

 

Highlight quotes, summarize, or paraphrase from this week’s readings and be sure to include an in-text citation in proper APA format (Author, year, p. X).

 

Must include three quotes from the readings.

 

When we discuss literature, it is all about the words before us. They are ours to consider and reflect on. So, you will want to make a strong assertion and prove it, or support it, by quoting from the readings. Include three quotes in our essay.

 

Create a strong thesis statement. Two sample thesis statements (which you are free to use) might be:

 

  • Minority writers: A and B write against stereotypes, cross-cultural issues, and the importance of diversity in America.
  • Minority writers, through their shared stories of being torn between two cultures and being impacted by stereotypes, highlight the importance of celebrating diversity as seen in the writings of A and B.

Be sure to include an APA reference page. 

 

Writings from both Asian American authors are included in the attachments as PDF documents. Be sure to reference at least 1 quote from each of the author’s work – do not use all three required quotes from the same author.

 

**Feel free to use other sources on the internet (not Wikipedia) as long as you include the in-text citation and full citation in the reference page.
