Choose only one topic. This research paper requires at least one outside source (which you will get by using Valencia’s databases). That outside source will be used to defend your thesis statement (once you decide what that thesis will be). You will cite and paraphrase from your research. You will also cite and paraphrase from the play you have chosen to write about. Discuss Nora Helmer’s change as a woman throughout A Doll's House? How does she change and what situations lead to her change? Did she change for the better? When Nora Helmer leaves her husband, Torvald Helmer, at the end of A Doll's House, she believes she is doing what needs to be done. However, given the context of the time, she will not have an easy life. Is Nora doomed for a life of struggles, or do you think she will be much happier as a woman away from Torvald Helmer? It’s been argued that Tom Wingfield in Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie suffers from severe abandonment issues after having been abandoned by his father at a young age. From a psychological perspective, make an argument for or against this statement. Amanda Wingfield in Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie is a complex character. She has many flaws. What do you think are her greatest flaws and how do those flaws affect her relationship with her children? Jane Martin’s Beauty addresses the importance we place on a woman’s physical attributes. Are there specific expectations of what women should or should not look like in our society and who is responsible for setting these expectations? 1. Read each topic above very carefully.
