Binary oppositions in P.K. Page’s
Discuss binary oppositions in P.K. Page’s “Unless the Eye Catch Fire,” and explore how the narrative also works to break down those oppositions.
Your argument will address not just how, but also why, the story takes this approach, and will consider concepts (e.g. there-here, self-other, life-death, etc.) as well as how people are opposed to one another.
Write an informative title that indicates the focus of your essay and identifies the text and author.
Draft a detailed, well-thought-out first paragraph that provides the full name of the text(s) and the author(s) and that begins with a general discussion of your topic and then introduces the narrower concern of your own essay and your plan of argument.
End the paragraph with your argument statement — the hypothesis you intend to argue.
