 Essay1 : The Functions of Literature and Myth 

 

In a 400-500 word essay: Discuss how the function of literature compares with the function of myth as described in chapter 3. To focus your answer, consider the hero myth alongside any combination of Homer’s Iliad, the novels of Ernest Hemingway discussed in this chapter, and one or more war poems from the chapter’s end.

Review “What is Myth” and “The Hero as World Myth” (chapter 3); “An Early Masterpiece: Homer’s Iliad,” “The Modern American Novel,” and “Critical Focus: Exploring the Poetry of War” (chapter 4).

Essay 2:  Essay: The Truth of Art 

 

In a 400-500 word essay, address the following: 

Aaron Douglas’s style “is the result of a deep-rooted belief that in trying to imitate the actual world, art-as-likeness was really falsifying the way we see that world.” Although all art is a form of imitation—whether of the actual or the imaginary world—Douglas’s belief highlights the way artists have used conflicting methods of getting to the “truth” of the world. Choose one image from early “realistic” methods of artistic representation and one image from later “art of alteration” and analyze the following:

  • How do the artists’ methods differ from each other?
  • What kind of truth does each work try to achieve?
  • What methods is each artist using to create this kind of truth?

Be sure to reference details from the pieces of art you choose to analyze.

Review “Renaissance Art” and “Art as Alteration” (chapter 5).

For this assignment, use the Broward College library to find at least one scholarly article that you can use to support the points you make in your essay.  You may use up to three sources in the essay.  Sources have to be properly cited using MLA in-text citations and properly documented in a MLA Works Cited list at the end of your essay.
