The Cask of Amontillado

I need your help in my engl 1302 essay

ASSIGNMENT: Write an essay of literary analysis presenting your interpretation of one of the short stories from the course calendar. Pages 35-44 and 51-57 in the book will help you. Use at least 4 quotations from the story to provide support for your argument. Provide additional support by discussing how the plot, setting, characters, point of view, symbols, style, tone, or language support the theme (discuss at least one of those 8).

This essay should have at least 5 paragraphs and include a clear thesis statement that you support with textual evidence.

Incorporate ideas from at least ONE piece of literary criticism about your chosen story (from a literary database).

Use proper MLA format to cite your textual references. See resources in the Resources tab.

Remember—you are doing a close examination of ONE story only.

LENGTH: 2-4 pages (about 600-1200 words). PLUS a separate works cited page

FORMAT: Use the MLA format: Times New Roman, 12-point font, one-inch margins, double spaced. The heading in the upper left corner of the first page (only) will have your name, professor’s name, class, and date. Put your last name and the page number in the upper right corner of every page.

Some topic ideas

Present your interpretation of one of the stories:

“The Worn Path” is a story of perseverance

“The Worn Path” shows how people treat the elderly with both more and less respect.

“The Worn Path” encourages readers to take care of the orphans and elderly.

“The Worn Path” is a story of hope in which an underdog triumphs over adversity.

“Everyday Use” shows a struggle between mothers and daughters.

“Everyday Use” shows how siblings can shape each other’s personalities.

“Everyday Use” shows the conflict between personal or family heritage and social or cultural heritage.

“Everyday Use” offers an “either/or” conflict that should be a “both and” collaboration.

“Everyday Use” shows how our mistaken assumptions can taint the way we see the world.

“The Cask of Amontillado” as a story of revenge.

“The Cask of Amontillado” as an exploration of a madman who is ashamed only of feeling guilty.

“The Cask of Amontillado” displays a perfect murder.

“The Cask of Amontillado” contrasts Montresor’s calm, clever, driven masculinity with Fortunato’s bumbling foolishness.

In “The Lottery,” a normal setting makes a horrible event even more horrible.

In “The Lottery,” the violence inherent in the society corrupts normal human relationships (parent and child, husband and wife, friends, etc).

Foreshadowing in “The Lottery” hints at what’s to come.

In “The Lottery,” the people have become so used to violence that they barely notice it.

“The Lottery” is about the human ability to be inhumane to other people.

“The Story of an Hour” shows a woman escaping from a repressive life.

In the “The Story of an Hour,” elements of the setting symbolize Louise’s mental journey.

In “The Story of an Hour,” Louise Mallard finally finds herself when she is left alone.

“The Story of an Hour” shows that happiness is not as important to some people as freedom.

“The Storm” shows how normal standards of sexual behavior are without merit.

“The Storm” shows two characters unable to resist when the weather shoves them into each other’s arms.

“The Storm” explores the importance of a woman’s sexual freedom.

“The Storm” is a class study in which the lower-class Calixta is allowed sexual freedom that higher-class Clarisse is not.

“The Storm” is a story without a point, since Chopin never tried to publish it. It’s her own private slash fiction.
