You may choose ONE of these and answer in a 4-5 page double-spaced paper in MLA format with Works Cited.
1, In his novel, The Hours, Michael Cunningham reimagines and amplifies Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway, filling in blanks in the novel and creatively reinventing Virginia Woolf’s world and themes. In a 4-5 page essay, please discuss how Cunningham’s novel borrows from Mrs. Dalloway and/or A Room of One’s Own, and how his interpretation creates something new out of something that exists already. In other words, how has he made his work of art new while respecting the original? You must have a Works Cited in proper MLA format that includes the article you researched in the library (or another article from JSTOR, ProQuest, or LRC) as well as the novels, with quotes from these sources integrated into the paper.
2, Select one character from The Hours and compare him or her to the original inspiration in Mrs. Dalloway. (You may compare several characters) [Notice, some characters may be a composite of more than one character—if so, please discuss all.] Thoroughly discuss the character and how he or she functions in both books using plenty of examples and quotes. What does this character add to the novel’s overall themes? How does the depiction of the character in the film change or support your thesis? [Alternatively, you might discuss the men in the novel and film.] You must have a Works Cited in proper MLA format that includes the review(s), the film, and the novels, with quotes from all of these sources.
3, Please write a 4-5 page review of the film The Hours and discuss how it comments upon the original book by Michael Cunningham and on Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway. Please also respond to and quote from at least one film review (either the reviews distributed in class or another review that you have found online). You must have a Works Cited in proper MLA format that includes the review(s), the film, and the novels, with quotes from all of these sources.
Please be sure to include:
Works Cited page in proper MLA format
Double-spaced, professional-looking paper in MLA format
Use an introductory strategy we discussed
Use appropriate transitions between paragraphs (p.201)
Use enough evidence through quotes and or specific details in the novel to support your points.
