The last blog post is optional. Doing it will have either a positive or a neutral effect on the “Blog Posts” category of your grade (worth 25%).
Pick one of the following prompts and answer in a short essay of 500-1000 words.
1. Explain at least one idea about time offered by Slaughterhouse-Five. Compare that to the way time works in another piece of fiction (book, movie, etc.) or within a particular philosophical, scientific, or religious system. What do you learn from the comparison?
2. Is Slaughterhouse-Five an example of “uncreative writing”? Explain, and make it clear to your readers why we should care.
3. Read “The Scourge of ‘Relatability,'” by Rebecca Mead. Do you agree, disagree, or a little bit of both? Explain with reference to any one of our assigned readings. You’re free to discuss your own experiences; however, the main source for your argument should be the words of the literary text.
