American Literature II
Directions: Our first “Brief Writing Assignment” asks us to consider definitions of Realism and Regionalism, and to formulate a smallish essay in which we create an argument about one or more authors and argue how he/she/they measure up to the definition and why. Which author have you chosen, and why do you think they are exemplary of the definitions of Realism or Regionalism, or perhaps both?
Classroom text is titled: Baym, N. (Ed) (2013). The Norton Anthology of American Literature, Shorter Eighth Edition. New York: W.W. Norton & Company.
Thesis Statement: Please formulate a clear thesis statement that directly presents your argument point. Do not use a purpose statement, a quotation, or question as your thesis
