To what extent do Potemkin and Heart of a Dog share a vision of class conflict, Revolution, historical change, gender, or progress?
Paper 1 – – 5-7pp
Compare and contrast EITHER Potemkin and Heart of a Dog OR All Quiet on the Western Front and Grand Illusion in 5-7pp. In either case, pick a central problem or theme both works address. To what extent do they share a vision of class conflict, Revolution, historical change, gender, or progress? Where do they part company? Your thesis must be the last sentence of your first paragraph and provide a clear, analytical claim about the relationship between the two works. Each topic sentence must build your case logically and refer back to your thesis. Pick a handful of quotes — enough to support your claims but not so many as to crowd out your own voice — to support your claims. Remember not to let quotes speak for themselves. Introduce them and then unpack them, in your own words. Do not consult outside sources.
