Comparing acts of rebellion in Civil Disobedience and Two Kinds 1 Hi Lisa, Thanks for submitting the assignment. I really like the manner in which you show that confronting authority is a mainstay of both selected works by Thoreau and Tan. What is especially interesting is how the concept of confronting authority (in varied ways) crosses cultural boundaries (Western and Eastern traditions). Please remember to begin and remain in the present tense when discussing literature: a living art (please see class Announcement to this effect). Additional comments follow. Sincerely, Dr. Brevard Comparing acts of rebellion in Civil Disobedience and Two Kinds [Great title] Capitalize all words in a paper title, except articles (“and,” “of,” “the,” “for,” and the like).

Comparing acts of rebellion in Civil Disobedience and Two Kinds 2 Please review commas and semi-colons. Civil Disobedience [punctuation?] by Henry David Thoreau [punctuation?] and Two Kinds [punctuation?] by Amy Tan [punctuation?] share a similar action of rebelling against authority. Thoreau is describes his view of state government “I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government” (p. 900). In Two Kinds , the daughter describes her mother willing her into a prodigy “we didn’t immediately pick the right kind of prodigy” (p. 172). The connection between Civil Disobedience and Two Kinds is the protagonist rebellion against unfair authorities. The main characters of both selections share common actions of passion.
