I need help completing an outline for an analytical essay on A Raisin in the Sun and Oedipus Rex, I have not came up with a working thesis for the paper and I must have this ready by midnight tonight.
Axia College Material Appendix E Final Paper Matrix Fill in the matrix below, in which you will select two pieces of literature from the assigned course readings to compare and contrast in your final essay. Additionally, develop three possible topics for your paper, which your instructor will review for approval. Lastly, list and describe three to five sources that you will use to write your essay. Literature Selection One Title: A Raisin in the Sun Author: Lorraine Hansberry Why I Chose This Piece: It describes the difficulties of living in the 1950’s for African Americans Literature Selection Two Title: Oedipus Rex Author: Sophocles Why I Chose This Piece: I like reading about Greek mythologies and felt that this would be an interesting piece to work with. Topics Primary Topic: The symbolism of Raisin in the Sun compared to the symbolism in Oedipus Rex. Alternative Topic 1: The wealth of Oedipus and his family in contrast to the poverty of the Younger Family. Alternative Topic 2: The reasoning each writer used in the development of their stories whether it was something that was being dealt with or just a mere imagination. LIT 210
