Your final writing assignment for ENG 2100 asks that you analyze the thematic us


Your final writing assignment for ENG 2100 asks that you analyze the thematic use of violence in Butler’s Kindred and Burroughs’ Tarzan of the Apes. There are heavy doses of violence in both novels, much of it atrocious and pretty extreme. Torturous whippings, a suicide, rape, and dismemberment in Kindred. Stabbing and hanging, cannibalism and a variety of mutilations in Tarzan of the Apes. However, the meaning of violence in these two novels could not be more dissimilar. Your assignment, then, is to analyze and contrast the purpose and meaning of violence in Kindred and Tarzan of the Apes. What theme or message does Butler advance with the use of violence in her novel? Likewise, what is Burroughs’ purpose in portraying extreme violence in his novel?Organization: I ask that after your thesis paragraph you devote a single paragraph to Kindred, and then a longer section (possibly two paragraphs) to Tarzan of the Apes. I request that the centerpiece of this final essay be the Burroughs novel, and that you use your analysis of Kindred simply to establish a contrast.NOTE: My teacher wants me to use the theme of White Superiority in my essay, as well as in the thesis. Try to revolve the essay about the connection with white superiority and violence from both novels. And have a clear thesis. Please use SPECIFIC scenes and details from both novels to explain your answer.
