Modern Lit:
Writing: Detailed outline for essay response Unit 1 test:
Critic Roland Barthes argues that, “Literature is the question minus the answer.” Considering Barthes’ observation, analyze the central question that A Farewell to Arms raises—and the extent to which it offers any answers. Explain how the author’s treatment of this question affects the thematic impact/relevance/dissonance of the work.  As always, use evidence to support your thesis.  Essay will be approximately 1200-1500 words.  Detailed outline is due 10/30, drafting is due 11/2.
Important considerations:

Heroes: Although it is one of the most famous war novels ever written, A Farewell to Arms does not glorify war or exhibit traditional portraits of war heroes.

Symbols/Structure: Ernest Hemingway's novel A Farewell to Arms (1929) is structured in such a way that symbols and syntax replace human emotions.


War/love/death/life/birth: The function of love and war in society.

AP Literature:
Reading: Read Act 2 in "A Doll's House" and answer associated questions
