Modernist writing is often described as a reaction against the aesthetic and moral standards of the Victorian age and its flagship genre: the realist novel. Discuss two works that stage such a rebellion. Pick a specific and manageable topic as the basis of your comparisons—for instance, the representation of gender norms or intergenerational conflict or (if you wish to write about issues of narrative form) the handling of plot—and then compare and contrast the ways your chosen texts approach it. In your discussion, describe how the formal and thematic elements of the work interact to produce a modernist effect.
The two works that I want to choose are:
1. Their eyes were watching God by Zora Neale Hurston.
2.The sound and the Fury by William Faulkner.
Notes for the essay :
• 5-7 pages, not counting the title page and the Works Cited list.
• Font: 12 point Times New Roman, double-spaced.
• Block quotations should not appear in quotation marks (and should not be italicized). Use quotation marks only when embedding a quote in a sentence.
• Titles of books and novels should appear in italics.Titles of short stories, poems, and articles should appear in quotation marks (not italicized).
• A Works Cited list should appear at the end of the paper. Do not use footnotes for citations, only for peripheral comments/discussions. The Works Cited list should conform to the MLA format.
**No External Sources** (only the two works that I’ve mentioned up)
