Comparative Literature 201 Literature across Borders (Spring 2001) ESSAY ONE Choose either Topic A or Topic B, and write a thoughtful, carefully-supported essay in response. Your primary focus should be on the selections from Sonia Rivera- Valdés’ The Forbidden Stories of Marta Venerada (posted under “resources” on Sakai in the Martínez -San Miguel folder), but you are also asked to consider briefly a second work from our course, whether a written text or film, as a point of comparison. Please double space, use a 12-point font and one-inch margins. Five pages maximum . The essay will be due at the end of Spring Break; check with your section leader for the exact time. Topic A How does the ac t of “confession” (which implies the prior performance of a “shameful deed”) help to structure the ways that the characters of The Forbidden Stories of Marta Venerada tell their stories? Why do these characters confess, what do they confess, and above all how do they confess? What circumstances enable their confessions? Are their accounts reliable?
