Stop Time Frank Conroy
In a typed, double-spaced, 4-5 page paper, please respond to the following prompt:
Which of Frank Conroy’s struggles* do you most identify with, and why.
*A useful way to define this term is as follows: overarching Theme/Thread/Motif/Conflict/Tension most apparent and applicable to FC’s life. Plan to show textual evidence of your chosen Theme by incorporating 3 to 4 direct quotes. Remember that the project of the paper is two-fold: to analyze Frank himself in the context of Stop-Time, and then, to narrate a story from your own life that is, in some thematic way, no matter how directly or indirectly, parallel.
(In MLA, referring to the works of others in your text is done by parenthetical citation. Immediately following a quotation from a source or a paraphrase of a source’s ideas, place the author’s name followed by a space and the relevant page number.) e.g. Human beings have been described as “symbol-using animals” (Burke 3).
Due between Monday, November 30th, and Wednesday, December 9th at midnight. Two options for submission: firstname.lastname@example.org OR Room 114 in Morgan Hall, “Parker, Nathan.”
