The essays and short story within this unit are focused around the theme of loss, or rather, losing someone/something. Why is this theme such a popular topic for subject matter in writing? What can readers gain from the lessons provided by an author writing about loss? Are there overlaps between these stories/essays? Does the authors physical distance to the subject matter influence the effectiveness of their work? What do you see as the moral principles of writing about loss? When considering other elements of storytelling (action, plot, character, setting, atmosphere, point of view, tone, structure, choice of words, imagery) what is most important to the successful portrayal of loss? (These are all questions to consider when choosing a thesis to explore).
It is up to you to decide how you would like to frame your argument (thesis). Keep in mind that it must be consistent with including the theme of “loss” in some way. Take a stance on how this theme is developed/presented in creative work and utilize our readings and outside sources to defend your thesis.
