Making Progress on our Essay

Goal: The essay continues. Your goal today is the paragraph on theme.

Make progress on your essay.

Absent yesterday? 
  1. We worked on the irony paragraph. See below. 
  2. Review the writing task below. 
Writing Task:Consider the short story “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe and the movie The Night of The Hunter (1955) directed by Charles Laughton. What techniques do the author and director use to create the theme and mood?
Write a comparison/contrast essay discussing the similarities and differences between these two works. Keep in mind how the author and filmmaker use various literary and cinematic techniques to create mood, theme, and irony.
We visit counselors Friday 3/10. Bring a good book to read while you wait. 
Keep writing. Draft of your complete essay is due Tuesday 3/14. 
Keep reading. Book reviews happen on Wednesday 3/15. (Or maybe Thursday 3/16.)
