This essay will give you an opportunity to examine in depth a motif of trauma in Louise Erdrich's Tracks, Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried, or Arundahti Roy's The God of Small Things. The success of your essay will depend upon your ability to think critically about the novel you've chosen, to employ your analytical and interpretive skills, and to communicate your interpretation/argument effectively. You should take special care not to summarize the novel but instead use details from the text to support the points you are making. 

Recommended Process:

• Identify a motif of trauma in the novel. You may choose from one of the following or select a motif on your own; should you do that, please let me know ahead of time what you are considering. Possible motifs include (but are not limited to): 

o Failure of words
o Storytelling
o Silence
o Twoness (i.e. two sides to the Repetition self)
o Haunting/Ghosts
o Memory
o Fragmentation/Brokenness
o Insanity
o Humor
o Two worlds (i.e. reality & fantasy) 
o Twisted plot structure
o Figurative language fantasy

• Ask a question about your chosen motif that you will explore in your essay. This question should be one that cannot be answered definitively. What you ultimately want to know is how the novel uses your motif and what the motif suggests about trauma. The answer to your question will be your thesis statement.
• Spend some time thinking about and reviewing the novel for details, particular scenes, characters, dialogue, etc. that help you answer your question.
• Make an outline of the points you want to make about the motif you have chosen and of the details from the novel you will use to support your points.
• Write your first draft.
• Revise, revise, revise.
• Ask a classmate, roommate, friend, or parent to read your essay and give you suggestions.
