This is an assignment for English American Literature II about drama. I need you to watch a play and write a paper them using modernism and postmodernism.
Here is the full info about the paper
“The Final Lesson covers American Drama. We will look at two seminal plays about the American dream, examining those plays through the lenses of modernism and postmodernism. Look for these plays on YouTube. You can watch the plays scene by scene (it's hard to find full versions all in one take on YouTube) and you will understand them much better if you watch as you read. The famous version of Glen Garry Glenross includes a scene that is not in the book, but it's pretty terrific and worth watching. It stars Alec Baldwin and many other famous people. The version of Death of a Salesman with Jason Robarbs is my favorite but the one with Dustin Hoffman is also terrific. The paper will also be written during this lesson. No late papers will be accepted.”
The final paper will involve answering the two questions below. Be sure to included quotes from the plays, and the source discussed below. Do not use sources from outside the course. Cite your sources (even those you paraphrase) and create a Works Cited for each answer using MLA formatting. Use Son of citation machine or a site like it to help you if you need it. You will have to use Word to create the paper. If you upload your essay using any other program, I might not be able to open your paper.
Organize your answers with a short introduction and body paragraphs. Create a thesis for each paper that will come at the end of the introduction. Create topic sentences for each body paragraph.
