Prof. Swanson EN101H/ Fall 2008 Fifth Formal Essay Assignment Due Date: Wednesday, December 10 th The Writer’s Voice: Can You Hear Me Now? Over the past few weeks, as we have been coming closer to our final class (and final essay), I’ve been struggling to come up with an assignment that will be both interesting and provide a sense of closure to our exploration of the voice of the artist.

Since it is literally impossible for each and every individual voice to be heard, our democratic system sustains the notion that we, the people, must elect someone else to speak for us, both in our government and in the world. So, every four years, we search for that voice –the one we believe is capable of unifying all of our voices into one. This past November, by one of the smallest margins in history, that one voice was entrusted to President-Elect Barack Obama. Maybe, on November 4 th , your voice was one of the many chanting “Yes we can,” when the final poll results came through. Maybe you felt vindicated and believed that your voice was heard. However, maybe you were one of the many discouraged people who felt that the wrong person was elected, and that your candidate, and your voice, were tossed aside. What I’m giving you in this final essay assignment is a real chance for your voice
