Talking the Texts
Before the break, I postponed “Like a Winding Sheet” and a chapter entitled “The Apartment” from The Street by Ann Petry. We will pick that up this week. Please study the content folder and follow-up with a discussion post. Texts that are influenced by realism and naturalism recognize the faults of the character and do not just point a figure at society. Consider this in your discussion.
The ‘Color’ Line
What did you think of “The Wife of His Youth”? Consider themes of intraracialization (prejudice within the race due to complexion) and the color line.
“Sweat” and “A Sunday Morning in the South”
Similar to Petry, Zora Neale Hurston examines male-female relationships in her short story “Sweat”. Chime in and give your thoughts on this text.
A Sunday Morning in the South
Georgia Douglas Johnson was one of the first anti-lynching activists. Discuss your thoughts on this play. Warning: It has an emotional ending.
Discussion 1—Ann Petry post
Discussion 2—Discuss your favorite from below and explain why. Interpret the theme and/or analyze a character’s action. Support with at least one quotation from the text.
