The post Heroes’ adventures first appeared on COMPLIANT PAPERS.
We have been immersed in heroes’ adventures through international films and the novel, Gods of Jade and Shadow. We’ve followed the journeys of various heroes whose adventures have been extraordinarily different (venturing into the Mayan underworld, the New Zealand forest, and the Chinese desert) while strikingly similar.
For this assignment, read Gods of Jade and Shadow, and watch the films Hunt for the Wilderpeople and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Using ALL three of the assigned works–Gods of Jade and Shadow, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon–identify, analyze, and explain the significance of a thematic connection between all three texts.
What are the authors saying about the theme, and how is it demonstrated in the text? What can we take away from this?
This assignment is designed to push you beyond the work you completed for your previous essay in which you identified and explained your observations. In this assignment, you’re expected to analyze and develop an argument about ONE of the suggested themes listed below or one you’ve discussed with me. Consider and explain why your observations and analysis are important to us–your readers–and the academic conversation. What can we gain from your analysis? Be prepared to dig deep to find and share the treasure you’ve gained from your intellectual investigation of the texts. This should be woven throughout the essay and not addressed merely in conclusion.
