American Literature

1. One of Walt Whitman’s favorite themes is democracy, which he took not to be a mere political idea but genuine, radical equality. How do we see this dedication to equality in Whitman’s poetry? Please provide specific examples from the poems that we have studied. 2. Many writers of the Realist Era are distinguished by their commitment to reform, their conviction that literature can bring about genuine social change. Discuss how two of the writers we have studied seek to bring attention to injustice. 3. The end of slavery did not bring about the end of racism. Compare and contrast the alternative strategies that Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois proposed for improving the position of African Americans in the postwar era. You must answer EACH of the following questions in responses of 250-300 words each. Remember to back up all assertions with specific evidence / quotes from the texts we have discussed. This is very important: vague, rambling responses won’t do the job. You should restrict your sources to the textbook and handouts. Works Cited is not necessary.
