Forms of Literature: Week Five—
The works do any excellent job of addressing individuality in correlation a fictional government, and in many cases, it presents a more dynamic view of the government concerning the restrictions placed on society and mainstream versions of history.
This notion is then transferred to the entirety of America and defines all peoples within it as “American,” while simultaneously discounting and discriminating against those who do not share similarities. They are simply an afterthought, with no culture, customs, beliefs of their own; they are there to be exploited and used, dead or objectified in the same sense. Economic terminology and ideology then replace any commitment to specific sections of humanity based on the idea that the “good of nation” is more important than right or wrong or ethics and morals for the majority, making both marginalized groups and the dominant inhuman.
Discussion Board Questions:
Please read through the prompts & plan your responses; you want to be thorough & explain your answers, referencing the texts for support.
Answer the following questions with one paragraph per question:
1) What tendencies in present-day American society is Vonnegut satirizing?
2) Is Diana Moon Glampers a flat or round character? Would you call Vonnegut’s characterization of her realistic? If not, why doesn’t it need to be?
3) From what point of view is the story told? Why is it more effective than if Harrison Bergeron had told his own story in first person?
Discussion Post Rules:
Make an academic argument. Do not summarize. Ask yourself what is the deeper meaning of the texts, and what can we learn from them within the scope of American Minority Studies? Support your answers with academic secondary sources. Use the LRC website (or other credible search engines) to locate sources and the Purdue OWL for MLA rules and formats for both quotes and Work Cited.
1. Content: Do not use quotation marks to add emphasis to words, i.e. ″front row seat.″ Also, avoid using clichés such as this. Always state the title of the text and author when beginning your post. Never assume the reader knows who or what you are discussing. When referring to a character always state their full name and then refer to them by last name thereafter.
2. MLA: For in-text citations use the author and page number only. If you are paraphrasing then I need to see an in-text citation showing the page you get the information from. The title should be in quotation marks and not italics.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?
