Any poem/story that you can find that has been written now or about epidemics in the past (Daniel Defoe, Mary Shelley, Jack London)

  1. You are writing a critical reflection with reference to epidemics in literature and/or literary history.

This is a sample of a memoir with a thesis but it is not a critical reflection


Sample above.

  1. Your paper needs to have a thesis.

Here is an example of a possible thesis.

Sickness travels best through the same channels as do friendship, fondness and love. Whoever shared my burger that day, or hugged me at the airport and helped me carry my luggage, whoever danced with me or clinked my glass are all going to be infected. Love and Covid 19 travel in parallel lines.

You are not writing a description or a narrative paper. You are telling a story and then reflecting on it critically.

This is your final paper and it needs to be 4 pages long, 12 point font and one inch margins. Use the MLA citation style as always. You may use only end of text citations. The paper is due on May 9th 2020, on blackboard.
