Structural Issues

Q1. you’re going to provide feedback on your three classmates’ drafts. Please review the directions above on how to give peer critique and the numbered items I have below. (200words each)I’m not concerned with your titles, minor punctuation errors, or your grammar so you don’t need to write about that! Instead, focus on larger, structural issues such as:- Are there two characters who know each other?- Is the conflict evident? What’s the story about?- What’s driving the story? Does the story begin in media res, which leads to why today?- What is different about today than any other day? Some things to think about: If the story covers a large amount of time, does it need to? Can the story be told in a shorter amount of time? Can the crux of the story exist over an afternoon? Over dinner? Do you need all the zipping from one place to another?- What is at stake in this story? That is, what is the character risking with his/her/their actions or behavior? A marriage or relationship? A job? Their house? Something needs to be at-stake externally.- Is the main character active or passive? Does the main character only observe the action or does s/he/they participate–say things, move around–in the story?- Does the writer effectively use sensory detail? Can you picture the setting? What’s the most memorable image and why? Are strong, colorful verbs used?- Are there cliches or stereotypes in the story? Be gentle, but direct when pointing them out.- Is the story in first person or limited third? Do you only go into the head/thoughts/feelings of the main character (first & third limited) or does the narrator shift the POV, going into the head/thoughts/feelings of more than one character (omniscient)? Remember, the story should be told either in first or limited third.- Does the story have a beginning, middle, and end?- is this story mostly in scene or summary? Are the crucial scenes of the story (like the climax, the beginning, the ending) summarized or are they in scene?Q2. Post your summary of Denis Johnson’s “Emergency” (100words)1. Author’s name + Title of the text2. Main topic of text is paraphrased (Topic is the literal, concrete sequence of events)3. Main purpose of text is paraphrased (Purpose is what the story’s themes are)4. Summary is 2-4 sentences long5. Summary is in your own words (no quotations)6. Vivid and precise verbs & transitions are used7. Proofread8. An author is always referred to by their last name (Gilman) not first (Charlotte)Q2-1. let’s try to tie FHead’s conflict (name it/them) & change (name it) to place or setting. (100words)To do this, you might think about where and when FHead is in harmony or disharmony with the setting. How do Fhead and Georgie move through this landscape?You might also analyze how secondary characters are described. Or, you might analyze the tone (is humor used, where?) in each of these vignettes. You might compare the settings of the different vignettes. You might think about how place works literally and figuratively.To do any of this kind of analysis, let’s do a close read of Johnson’s style, too. This means I’d like you to analyze Johnson’s style as you’re analyzing Fhead’s change and/or the setting &/or secondary characters &/or tone, etc.Be sure to do some citing from the text.
