In the Blood

Directly paraphrased from my Professor:These assignments are not meant to be formal essays; you do not have to present and develop a fully-fledged argument. In fact, do not bother with introductions or summaries or author biographies or any other space-wasting writing. I want to see you practice interpreting the text. In general, I will evaluate you based on how well you:(a) say something interpretive about the specific details of a text (i.e. close reading): you should think critically about the significance of the language, diction, images, motifs, and/or structure that the author uses in the passage you’re talking about. You should always be quoting from, citing, and analyzing the text. (b) try to do some creative and critical thinkingClose Reading Prompt: Analyze how In the Blood engages with or otherwise represents some of the conventions of traditional tragedy or some of the big questions/preoccupations of the tragic genre. What are one or two conventions of tragic drama or questions that the genre ponders, and how does Parks include them or respond to them in the way she builds her play? Be sure to pick details from the play to discuss closely.You might also want to think about the effect of Parks’ wrestling with conventional tragedy. Why would a 20th-century African-American woman want to deal with a form that is usually associated with dead white men?This assignment should be 2 pages long. It should be typed, given a descriptive title, and carefully proofread.This is a close reading assignment. You are expected to respond to the prompt while analyzing and interpreting a chosen detail in the text or passage thinking critically about it.No source is needed I will provide the pdf for the play “In the Blood”Please no plagiarism what so ever. My Professor is very strict on this and uses multiple tools to check. I will check as well.
