Hausheer Kristin Hausheer ENG 325-01 Professor Uraizee 11.30.10 Final Exam I chose prompt three because Paradise Now was the story that affected me the most in this class. Since I was so affected by it, I found it easier to use my imagination in summarizing the thoughts and feelings of Suha. I chose to create (as best I could) the actual article as it would appear in Azeez because I wanted it to seem as realistic as possible. For my second prompt, I chose question 5, which involved writing a dialogue between Nigar Hanim and The Amazon from I, Anatolia . This play also stood out to me in class, but it was the question you asked that further inspired me. I thought it would be easier to understand the dialogue in written format, rather than as a solo performance. I also wanted to write the dialogue in the way the play was written so it would seem more tied to that reality. As for time and place, my Paradise Now article is set not long after Said’s suicide attack. It is intended for Azeeza readers, but assuming it was published in reality, I would want it to be read online as well. Hopefully, it could be read by women (and men) of Palestine, as well as people from other countries. In reality, this article would have needed to be written in Arabic, but it could be translated. Still, I wrote in English, and I tried to be straightforward in telling Suha’s story. I offered my opinion to an extent, but I think it also the kind of story that should force people to wrestle internally with its injustice. 1

Hausheer The dialogue between Nigar and the Amazon is set in Nigar’s lifespan. It is meant for an audience of the future who can see both pasts of these women, as well as the modern 21 st century view of women. For this reason, I wrote both women very strictly within their pasts as I understood them. I did take liberties at the end of the dialogue since the Amazon has appeared as a ghost. I imagined that she could see some of the truth in Nigar’s arguments because she was dead. It was difficult in both prompts to give my imagination free reign. I am unaccustomed to writing this way so at first it felt strange as it did on the midterm. Still, it was also a very cathartic feeling, and it actually strengthened my understanding of the material, as well as my own opinions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
