ANOTHER TEXT THAT OUTLINES THE HERO'S JOURNEY.
So, WE'LL start with an easy one, "A&P" BY JOHN UPDIKE. Then WE'LL answer SOME DISCUSSION QUESTIONS about the plots and some more questions about whether or not "A&P" follows the Hero's Journey.
THEN WE'LL JUMP INTO SOME BRITISH LIT AND LOOK AT "ARABY" BY JAMES JOYCE AND TALK ABOUT IT IN RELATION TO THE HERO'S JOURNEY.
I'LL GO AHEAD AND THROW THIS ARTICLE ABOUT HOW TO WRITE GOOD PARAGRAPHS IN HERE AS WELL, SINCE WE'LL BE USING THESE CONCEPTS THROUGHOUT THE SEMESTER AS WELL.
FINALLY, THIS SITE DESCRIBES A LOT OF TERMS (MOST OF WHICH YOU SHOULD AT LEAST BE ALREADY FAMILIAR WITH) THAT WE'LL USE THROUGHOUT THE SEMESTER TO TALK ABOUT LITERATURE.
also, here's a good EXAMPLE OF LIT CRIT IN action in THIS ARTICLE ABOUT Valerian and the city of a thousand planets.
