choose one of the following prompts (do not do both)
1. Select two of the short stories. Compare and contrast the woman-focused theme(s) of each piece. What common ideas do they share? For this prompt, you cannot compare and contrast “Why I Wrote the Yellow Wallpaper” with “The Yellow Wallpaper” because they are too closely related.
2. Select a female character from two different stories. How are these two characters portrayed? Do they play into or work against traditional gender expectations for women?
