400 words For this first discussion board assignment you will practice identifying literary devices in a work of literature. We will focus on several elements starting with Theme. A theme is the overall message or idea an author is trying to convey in a work. Then you will identify the known as symbol motif in the work. Finally you will identify other literary devices such as metaphors personification etc. in a work. Please review the following document for an excellent overview of all these terms including examples. · Literary Devices and Terms: Theme https://www.litcharts.com/literary-devices-and-terms/theme Once you are reviewed this document choose a work of your own. You can choose a work from Module 2 or any other work of prose (no poetry yet.. we will get to that). Please note I know many of these works are LONG so I dont expect you to do an entire book. You can choose an appropriate excerpt to make it more manageable. As another example I chose the most famous Romeo and Juliet scene: The balcony scene. SCENE II.docx I identified some lines and phrases in which Shakespeare supported one of the themes of the play: Love triumphs over evil. In addition I identified some areas where there were common motifs (i.e. light color) and literary devices. This you can use as an example of how to do this in a work. Once you have done this to an excerpt of your own answer the following questions: What is the general plot of the story or scene? What is a major theme of this story? (there can be more than one but you can just use one). Give examples from the work. What examples of symbol motif and leitwortstil are in this work of literature? What other literary devices are used within this work of literature? Give examples from the work. When completing your discussion explain the answer to the question and use at least one example from each from your work. You should have a total of about 8-10 examples (not each total).

250-300 words When using specific examples or quotations from the text please use a parenthetical citation e.g. (Lesson 7.5). In 1989 during the waning days of the Cold War political theorist FrancisFukuyama declared that liberal democracy (liberal in a 19th c./Enlightenment sense not a politically left/middle left sense) and economics had won the day and the end of history (he backpedaled this in an 2018 article) the passing of a particular period of post-war history but the end of history as such: That is the end-point of mankinds ideological evolution and the universalization of Western liberal democracy as the final form of human government. The last 30 years might disagree on the permanence of that order (or at least the absence of challenges to it) see: the rise of political Islam (al Qaedas attacks on liberal democracies ISIS and the Taliban making efforts to overcome/throw Western-style governments or attempts at creating Western-style governments in Iraq and Afghanistan) populist opposition to globalism (ex: Brexit the politics of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders) the continued existence of forms of colonialism and neo-colonialism (China in Africa for example) etc. How would you characterize the last thirty years compared with the previous eras that we have discussed (you can examine multiple ones or focus on one say the Atlantic Revolutions or the Cold War)? Does it have particular attributes or characteristics that historians might identity as unifying and/or coherent in the future? DidFukuyama have a point or not?
