  • Another thread for help

    Sorry, I know it's been overdone and all but when you create a thread solely for this purpose it tends to get more feedback.

    What would a foreigner think of america based on what American authors have written?

    Essay topic, fml.

    They could easily believe whatever you wanted them to. The spectrum of things about America in American literature is so widespread.

      I could write you a badass essay on the shittiness of France.
      The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

            As you mention it, any foreigner reading Toni Morrison would think we have a serious race problem.

              Oh, OK. I didn't know France was a race. I thought it was a cowardly country, but I might be wrong.

                I dont feel like getting this thread closed in less than two hours. And my topic is American authors in general. I hate my professor.

                  How are the citizens cowards? Because their government did certain things that you think are wrong?

                  That doesn't make the slightest bit of sense. People =/= government

                    I hate all of you who continue to hijack my honest thread.
                    American authors as a whole, How do foreigners percieve them?

                      What? You mean American citizens doesn't want to be in Iraq and that we're not all warmongers?

                      Back to the topic, is there a specific era of authors or just American authors in general?

                          Morrison doesn't paint too good of a picture of America lol

                          You could use books like Beloved and Huck Finn to talk about racial problems in America.

                            He didn't show it there as much but Vonnegut was very critical of the political system. People may think ill of our sociopolitical system if he were our only representation.

                              Narrowed it down to four. Cormac McCarthy, Ernest Hemingway, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Sherwood Anderson.
