20th Literature Assignment

Assignment

For this assignment, you will create a presentation that describes the literary connection between two works of poetry from this week and World War I or World War II. The poems you select do not need to have been written during the time of the wars or to be written about these wars specifically. The goal of this assignment is for you to explore if and how the written word can appropriately portray war and to identify whether poems connected to the theme of war can be viewed as universal and timeless.

For this assignment, you will need to use software that allows you to record voiceoveron each slide to present your analysis—suchas VoiceThread or PowerPoint. Please see the Course Resources tab for more information about using these presentation software options.

Your presentation should include 10 to 15 slides with voiceoveron each slide. Your presentation should be between 5 and 10 minutes long.

For this presentation, each slide should have minimal text. Instead of relying on text, you should use imagesto visually support the points you are making in your presentation.

Please read the presentation resources before designing your presentation:
