PROMPT: Consider the societal expectations of women in the 1800s. What do Mrs. Mallard from "The Story of an Hour" and the narrator from "The Yellow Wall-Paper" experience that reflect the societal expectations of that time, and how did these oppressive expectations affect them? Be sure to discuss both stories. The Story of an Hour - https://archive.vcu.edu/english/engweb/webtexts/hour/ The Yellow Wall-Paper - https://www.nlm.nih.gov/exhibition/theliteratureofprescription/exhibitionAssets/digitalDocs/The-Yellow-Wall-Paper.pdf - 2 1/2 - 3 pages (600 - 750 words -- just go by the word count) - an introductory paragraph - clear thesis statement (one sentence at the end of the introduction) - at least two (2) body paragraphs - at least four (4) quotes in the body of the essay with proper MLA in-text citations. Pay attention to the page numbers on the actual PDFs, if they exist. e.g., (Stetson 546) and (Chopin). - a thoughtful conclusion - Outside sources are not required. Please don't use them. - Appropriate MLA heading and a Works Cited page are not required or recommended - TRY to stay in the third person. A few first and second-person words are fine, but not too many.
