Objective: Create a position and defend that position through a combination of analysis of primary sources and the inclusion of scholarly, secondary sources. What does that mean? You need to develop an argument and support it by both analyzing a film and its source material as well as provide research to support your argument. Length: 10 pages Sources: One film and text pairing from class. (Could be like water for chocolate book and movie OR Romeo + juliet book and movie (directed by Baz Lurmann) Outside Sources: at minimum 6 scholarly sources as part of your paper. The Assignment: Argue whether you believe that the literary source material or its corresponding film is the superior piece of literature? What does superior mean? Anything you want: more engaging, more enjoyable, more thought-provoking, etc. Analyze one of our films to demonstrate the significant differences between its literary source material and its film counterpart. What does this mean? Do a deep dive in showing how the movie and the literary work that inspired it function in relationship to each other. What are the key differences and what impact does that have? What are the key similarities and why is it important that these be maintained? Does the film maintain narrative continuity or thematic continuity? Both? Neither? Why is that important and what impact does it have on its audience. Why does that make one superior (however you defined that) to the other? Quite simply: Why is the book better than the movie or why is the movie better than the book? Remember: You must have a works cited page accurately detailing in MLA format what sources you use. It is best to use a source that is a bit older as there is more writing on it, so if you use one of contemporary pieces, you might find it harder to find good sources. Online only sources like websites, Wikipedia, etc, are not academic sources and therefore do not count towards the minimum requirements. That said, literary reviews from established literary magazines are acceptable sources for this essay.

Poems that deal with parenting “My Papa’s Waltz” https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/43330/my-papas-waltz “Daddy” https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/48999/daddy-56d22aafa45b2 Also, I need one BIO page this is what I wrote ##My Papa’s Waltz Original post: Fri 7/17/2020 at 2:56 AM 1-Denotations.The speaker is narrating a dance he had with his father thus the poem is told in past tense. The speaker says such waltzing was not easy. At the time they danced, the father was drunk. The speaker says, The whiskey on your breath could make a small boy dizzy. Also, this dance took place at home for we see that the speaker was taken to bed. The speaker says, Then waltzed me off to bed still clinging to your shirt. Also the speaker mentions that they romped until the pans slid from the kitchen shelf implying that they were dancing at home in the kitchen. The speaker is a child because in the poem he mentions romping until the pans slid from the kitchen shelf. The word romping is commonly used to refer to children. Also he was as tall as his father’s waist. The speaker says, At every step you missed, my right ear scraped a buckle. 2-Connotative.The central theme in the poem is fear that some sons have for their fathers. This can be derived from the act of the father beating the son. While this poem explores characteristics of the theme of parenthood, it more closely explores the obstructions of the smooth relationship between father and son. The father beats the son and the son fears the father, creating an unbalance in their relationship, and a rift in it. The author views parenthood as a power over an individual. This is seen with the father having, and exploiting, such power over the son. He uses his power to take out his frustrations on his son, knocking down pans in the kitchen with the force of his beatings. 3-Poetic. Is written in an imagery and has a rhythm. I like how The poet goes into great detail describing the father, The hand that held my wrist , Was battered on one knuckle (Roethke). He also describes how he is injured while dancing, At every step you missed, My right ear scraped a buckle (Roethke). Assonance is the repetition of vowel sounds in the same line such as the sound of /i/ in Still clinging to your shirt (Roethke). There is only one simile used in this poem. It is used in the third line, But I hung on like death (Roethke).
