Revision and Development: “Trifles”
For this assignment, you will revise your exam to make your responses more effective and develop your exam into an essay by adding an introduction and a conclusion. This assignment is mandatory. You must complete it regardless of the grade you received on your exam. It counts as a separate grade. It does not replace your exam grade. Please note no outside sources can be used in this assignment.
This will be a five-paragraph essay. Your first paragraph will be your introduction. For this paragraph, respond to the following prompt:
Based on what you have written for your exam, what is Susan Glaspell, in her play “Trifles,” saying about the life of married women at the time the play was written in 1916? What does she use Minnie Wright to show was the most a married woman at that time could hope for in life? According to Glaspell’s portrayal of Minnie Wright, whose happiness and satisfaction was considered most important in a marriage? What, according to her, seemed to be the only way someone like Minnie Wright felt she could ever have control over her own life and wellbeing?
Your introduction will be followed by the three paragraphs from your exam that you have revised according to my comments and direction.
Your final paragraph will be your conclusion. For this paragraph, respond to the following prompt:
Reflecting on what you have written in your introduction and body paragraphs, how, in your opinion has life changed since Glaspell wrote this play? Please give specific examples to support your opinion.
