Harper Lee and Emotion: Fiction is Not Fiction Without Sentiment

Paper instructions from customer:

The assignment involves analyzing one of two books: Gideon’s Trumpet OR To Kill a Mockingbird

It is a critical book review and not a book summary. Accordingly, your paper must:

  • contain a thesis
  • present concrete supporting materials from your book and course materials
  • develop and rebut the most persuasive counter-arguments to your thesis
  • draw a conclusion that follows from your arguments

Here are several suggested theses (choose one or introduce your own):

Gideon’s Trumpet illustrates [or challenges or qualifies] Marc Galanter’s argument that the “haves” always come out ahead…

To Kill a Mocking Bird illustrates [or challenges or qualifies] the argument that law cannot produce social change in a racist community…

These are only suggestions. There are no “right” answers or arguments. You should persuade us of your argument, while teaching us about its potential weaknesses.
