due date / time: Friday, February 24 by 5:00 pm


paper submission: to Mike’s mailbox (3rd floor of Eliot), outside Mike’s office (Vollum 317), or to Mike in conference.
assignment:

You are asked to demonstrate how form shapes content or determines meaning in one (1) text: James’s What Maisie Knew, Joyce’s Dubliners, or Rhys’s After Leaving Mr. Mackenzie. (If you choose Joyce, write on only one [1] assigned story from Dubliners.) “Form” can refer to any aspect of style or to the way the author constructs the material of the narrative. Choose a relatively small part of the text to focus on: a passage (even a single paragraph), an excerpt of dialogue, or some combination of description and dialogue.
